First Holy Communion (Eucharist)

Any child not attending a Catholic school is able to celebrate their First Holy Communion as a Catechist. The Candidate must be in at least Grade 4 level.
St Kevin’s Catechist program is an at home commitment between family and child which involves working through a Catechist booklet (provided). We allow a 10 week period for a comfortable time frame for this to be achieved and these workbooks will be used to finalise sacramental preparation.
Please contact the Parish office on 9850 5983  to register and begin.

We look forward to celebrating this important Sacrament with your child/ren. In the meantime, and to help with preparation, we encourage all families attending mass on a regular basis, as this  will prepare your child to feel comfortable during mass and help them to feel at ease in Church and with Fr Charles.
If you would like your child to receive the sacrament of First Eucharist, please contact the Parish Office on 9850 5983 or email us on
Blessings from all of us at St Kevin’s Parish.
