Year 5 and Year 6 students at Peter Moyes Anglican Community School recently enjoyed the opportunity to partake in their First Holy Communion. Delayed due to previous years’ Covid restrictions, the two cohorts celebrated with parents and staff, marking a joyous and momentous occasion.

The Communion provided a chance for students, staff and families to gather together at St Gregory’s Chapel as a community, affirm their faith, and celebrate the sacrament together.

School Chaplain, The Reverend Jean-Pierre Schroeder, delivered a poignant sermon, emphasising the significance of the Holy Communion and its role in strengthening the students’ relationship with God.

Students prepared for their First Holy Communion by attending extra chapel sessions with Reverend Jean-Pierre, which involved learning the meaning and significance of Holy Communion, and rehearsing for the service.

The service was followed by a delicious morning tea in the School gardens, hosted by School Principal Mr Benjamin Lomas, Associate Principal Mr Roderick Wood, and Dean of Students Ms Kellie Shimmings.

Mr Lomas remarked “We were thrilled to be able to mark our students’ milestone of First Holy Communion as a community, something which we have not been able to do in recent years due to the pandemic. Having parents, guardians and friends in the Chapel to support our students in affirming their faith is a blessing, and one which we hope to be able to continue for many years to come.”
