To help girls and boys prepare for their first Reconciliation (Confession) and First Holy Communion our own Fr Chris O'Donnell has worked with iCatholic, on behalf of the Catechetics Council of the Irish Bishops' Conference, to produce 3 video lessons for First Communion children and their families.
