We thank all their parents who have journeyed with them as they prepare for this special day. A big thank you to the “Do this in Memory” subcommittee who have been involved in the planning of the four preparation Masses. We also acknowledge the great work done by our dedicated teachers in our parish schools as they continue to prepare our children for the reception of the sacraments and the passing on of the Christian faith to them.
