Changes to the Sacramental Programme in Leeds Diocese.In the 2017 – 2018 school year, children in Year 3 will prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation only. The Sacramental Programme for First Holy Communion will now take placewhen children are in Year 4. Therefore, our next First Holy Communion wil be in 2019! Confirmation will continue to take place when children are in Year 6.   If your child does not attend St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School but wishes to complete the Sacramental Programme, they should contact 

Father Firth directly to ensure they are known to him and can then receive any information.    01282 812204.
