Hello, can anyone help to put my mind at rest regarding my daughter. She attends a RC primary school and is baptised catholic. We attend church but not every week.
She is currently year 3 and one of the parents asked whether we had received a letter regarding the childrens first holy communion, we haven't.
I'm now very worried that she hasn't been selected for it. Does it sound like it might be the case? I also wouldn't know the reason why she'd be missed out. It's making me quite anxious.
Thanks in advance for any replies.

well you don't usually get selected its more a case of putting yourself forward - have you missed something that was announced at mass?

I run the first communion programme in our parish. While we put a note in the school newsletter, we certainly don't write to parents about their child starting the programme. We have an application form attached to the church newsletter which you have to complete and hand in to the parish.
Give them a ring tomorrow and ask

You don't get selected - in our parish a note goes out in the bulletin at mass and you have to contact the church office to "sign up".

or today of course - ring the priest and wake him from his post lunch nap grin

Just ring up. At our school all the Catholic children get a letter at the start of the year. There isn't a selection process but some parishes are more concerned then others about regular church attendance. Someone at church will coordinate the programme, school can probably advise who that is.
