Dear Parents,
Greetings and every good wish. Here in Holy Cross Parish, we are all eagerly looking forward to our celebrations of First Holy Communion and Confirmation, which are fast approaching. To help you prepare your child for these important milestones of faith, Holy Family Mission, based in Glencomeragh, in our diocese, have released a short series of videos for you and your child to watch and discuss. Holy Family Mission are a team of young adults and teachers who spend a year living in community, deepening their Catholic Faith, and engaging with young people through retreats, missions and talks.
I encourage you to use the videos below (links attached) as a resource and I am sure you will find them helpful for preparing you and your child for the sacraments. (The videos can be found at under the heading ‘Sacramental Prep’ or on Youtube) We have 4 videos for Communion and 4 Videos for Confirmation. please scroll down to view.
