First Communion at Saint Paul's
In 2006, the General Synod of the Church of England voted to welcome children, who have not yet been confirmed, to be admitted to Holy Communion. This decision reflects common practice many Christian communities where all of God's children are welcomed to share in the Lord's Supper. In the Diocese in Europe, children from the age of 7 can so be admitted, provided that they undergo suitable preparation to ensure they have some sense of the dignity of the Sacrament. Children at Saint Paul's, Monaco have been welcomed to Holy Communion since November 2008 and, to date, 25 children have been admitted to Holy Communion in our church. If you know a child, seven years or older, who would appreciate admission to Holy Communion at Saint Paul's Church, please contact Father Walter.
