First Communion Mass Dates

First Communion will be celebrated over six Masses: Thursday 5th November, Friday 6th November, Tuesday 10th November, Wednesday 11th November, Thursday 12th November and Friday 13th November. Mass will commence at 6pm. At this stage due to COVID-19 pandemic regulations St Michael's Church has a capacity restricted to 100 people. Each Mass will be limited to 25 candidates and each candidate will be limited to 3 attendees.

Please note the children at St Michael's Parish celebrate their first Holy Communion in Year 3 (or above). They are required to have been baptised in the Catholic faith and to have made their first Reconciliation prior to making their first Communion. If they have not made their first Reconciliation they should contact Fr Geoffrey or enrol in the program run in July.

Presentation Masses

Due to the restricted capacity of Mass numbers candidates will not be required to be presented to the parish community at Mass this year.
