Timetable for First Communion Children- First Confession for children

2nd October 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Dear parents

You will have received a letter from Fr Marcin regarding the arrangements for First Confession and First Communion.

Because COVID 19 has confronted us with unexpected issues, Fr Marcin has taken into account the reality that some families already feel safe enough to come to church for Mass each week . Therefore he decided that he should arrange Holy Communion in two or maybe three separate cohorts starting with this group whose parents already feel safe enough.

This chart shows the timetable for this first group:

Date Time Event Location
Sat 18th July 11.00am Measurement of robes-again! St Swithun’s RC Church Southsea
Sun 13th Sept 10:00am Baptism of those children who are not baptised and reception into full communion for those baptised into another Church St Swithun’s RC Church Southsea
Fri 25th Sept 5:30pm Practice for First Confession St Swithun’s RC Church Southsea
Fri 2nd Oct 5:30pm to 7:00pm Celebration of First Confession for children (and parents) Holy Mass and blessing of Guardian Angel medals St Swithun’s RC Church Southsea
Sat 3rd Oct 11:00am Practice for First Holy Communion St Swithun’s RC Church Southsea
Sun 4th Oct 10:15am First Holy Communion celebration St Swithun’s RC Church Southsea
Sun 11th Oct 10:15am Thanksgiving after THE FIRST HOLY COMMUNION St Swithun’s RC Church Southsea

The other children are not forgotten but we will need to wait until September to organise the arrangements for this second group.

We shall continue to send you weekly videos in order to clarify aspects of our Catholic Faith.
