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:
|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|
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.
