Hexham And Newcastle

Seeing various posts about the death of the Bishop, I visited the website, and found, on a link to the Cathedral parish the following:

"Pupils at Our Lady & St. Anne's School are automatically included in the annual preparation for First Communion celebrations, usually held in June. This normally involves Year 5 pupils. Catechists hold preparation sessions at the school during normal school hours and the children also attend a number of Saturday morning classes at the Cathedral, which last 45 minutes."

The month of June in Year 5 means you have to be 10 years old before you can make First Holy Communion.

A fat lot Pope St Pius X knew!

What balderdash. The age of reason has always been seven.
