First Holy Communion

"I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never be hungry; he who believes in me will never thirst." John 6:35

Preparation for First Holy Communion has taken place this academic year.

Pupils from the parish of Our Lady of Lourdes and St Malachy made their First Holy Communion on Sunday 18th June 2017.

We would like to say a big 'thank you' to the children, their families and Fr Mahady for their great work throughout the preparation period this year.  It was a wonderful day and we were very lucky with the weather! We are extremely proud of you all!
