ETHOS

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION

In Grade 3, the Catholic girls begin preparation for the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. They learn what Communion really is: To receive Jesus’ gift of Himself means to give to the needs of others in a generous manner.

In Grade 4, this preparation continues and a bond between parents and girls is encouraged as this forms the foundation to their spiritual life.

Meetings with the Parish Priest are organised to prepare the girls for
1.The Sacrament of Reconciliation
2.The Sacrament of Holy Communion

At these meetings attended by Parents and girls, discussions and participation is encouraged.

A trip to the Carmelite Convent is organised for the girls each year where they visit the bakery to learn about the making of the communion bread. The Carmelite Sisters share some time with the girls in the chapel and play the Senagalese Harp.

The Mass is held in St Dominic’s Parish officiated by the Parish Priest. This coming together around the alter with family and friends, to celebrate Christ’s presence among us, brings into focus how precious the whole of God’s world is.
