First Communion Mass Dates

Due to the Greater Sydney lockdown restrictions the church is closed for public Masses. Dates for First Holy Communion Masses will be added when these restrictions are eased. Please check back regularly.

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- August.


Presentation Masses

There will be no presentation Masses in 2021 due to the Greater Sydney lockdown.


Lesson Preparation

Candidates from St Michael's Primary in year 3 will prepare for their first Communion at school during lesson time. All other candidates from State and Private schools and St Michael's students in year 4 and above are required to attend 2 x 50 minute lessons led by Lolina Aljasin our Sacramental Coordinator. Lessons are normally held in the church hall and full attendance is required. This year lessons will be online via Zoom. Lessons start Tuesday 19 or Wednesday 20 October 2021. These dates are to be confirmed.
