St. Mary's Parish, Drogheda


Our First Holy Communion ceremonies take place in May each year on two Sundays at the 12.00 noon Mass – see calendar for this years dates.


As part of our preparation programme for First Penance and First Holy Communion, we invite the children to a number of Sunday Masses during the year.

We meet the parents of the children and a committee is formed to co-ordinate the children who are involved in these liturgies.

Parents are encouraged to bring their child to Mass as they prepare for this special sacramental moment.
