The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life." The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it.
(Catechism of the Catholic Church)
The celebration of the Eucharist is at the core of our parish life, particularly on Sundays. All care is taken to make sure our worship is reverent and welcoming to all. For adults who seek communion with the Catholic Church, we run a programme of preparation which culminates in reception during the Easter Vigil (see RCIA page). Baptised Catholic children may be prepared to receive Holy Communion from the age of seven or eight (school year 3). Our parish is committed to supporting families in this role by offering a programme for parents and children between September and May.
