Eucharist

The Eucharist is for all baptised Catholics. If you are in any doubt if you are allowed to receive communion, then talk to one of our Priests prior to the Mass.

First Reconciliation and Holy Communion Programme 2023

Sessions will run from 9.00 am to 10.00 am on Saturday mornings starting 25th February 2023.

There will be five parent sessions on some of the Saturdays in the Church. The first of which will be on Saturday 25th February 2023.

If you would like your child to participate, please either pick up a registration form from the Nathrex or email the Presbytery at canterbury@rcaos.org.uk for the form or just download it below. Completed forms, together with the child’s baptismal certificate must be returned to the Presbytery before Sunday, 29th January 2023.

Children must be Year 3 or above.

We will be using the book ‘I Belong’ by Redemptorist Publications. It is available to buy from our St Thomas’ Bookshop or online I Belong | First Holy Communion | RP Books. I Belong is a very child-friendly resource, with lively, colourful material which is based on the framework of our celebration of the Eucharist (Mass).

The First Communion Day will be Sunday 11th June 2023, the Feast of Corpus Christi, at the 9.30am and 11.00am Masses.
