Fifteen children received their First Holy Communion at the St Ignatius Church (SIC) 6 pm Mass on Sunday 22 September 2019. Eight of the children were baptised by SIC Assistant Parish Priest Fr Lawrence Ng CDD at a ceremony held before Mass with godparents, family members and friends in attendance.

These are children of parent/s baptised as adults who want to join the Catholic Church or children of Catholic parents who have not had the opportunity to attend Sunday school (e.g. those who accompanied parents posted overseas). Some of the children who were baptised have parents who embraced the Catholic faith recently after baptism at Easter on completion of their Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) journey.

Each year, SIC Sunday school’s special catechism programme help prepare such children who are within the Standard 3 to Form Four age group for the Sacraments of Baptism and First Holy Communion. Towards the end of Mass, parents of the children who received their First Holy Communion and godparents of children who were baptised recited a pledge to be faith role models for the children.
