The First Holy Communion programme takes place every year for children from the parish who are in school Year 4 or above (i.e. turning 9 years old). Regular meetings are scheduled between September and April/May for children and parents, which take place at St. Edmund's Primary School. The children also regularly contribute to Mass at St. Joseph's.
