Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. John 6:54

We are excited to announce we are starting a brand new programme for the preparation of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. It is called Blessed and uses exciting, fresh resources to captivate and hold our children's attention. 

We will begin with a parent meeting

on 28 July, 6pm

at St Teresa's Hall, Cnr Riccarton Rd and Puriri St.


Our children's sessions will begin on 4 August 2021 and will run until 21 November.

The children’s formation will consist of six Wednesday sessions to prepare them for Reconciliation and six Wednesday sessions to prepare them to receive the Eucharist.

The programme will finish up with a half day Saturday retreat on the 20 November

followed by First Holy Communion Mass on Sunday 21 November.


Due to the large number of children we are expecting this year we will be running this programme at two different times.

Group one will be on Wednesday evenings from 4:00pm to 5:00pm.

Group two will be on Wednesday evenings from 5:30pm till 6:30pm.

Each session will be capped at 50 students. This will work on a first in, first served basis. 


All sessions will be held in the Bishop Joyce Centre at Our Lady of Victories Church.
