First Holy Communion Prayers

Dear Parents,

Please find below prayers for the boy’s First Holy Communion. Please help the boys prepare by practicing with them.


Prayer Before Communion
Lord Jesus, come to me.
Lord, Jesus, give me your love.
Lord Jesus, come to me and give me yourself.

Lord Jesus, friend of children, come to me.
Lord Jesus, you are my Lord and my God.
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Prayer After Communion
Lord Jesus, I love and adore you.
You’re a special friend to me.
Welcome, Lord Jesus, O welcome.
Thank you for coming to me.

Thank you, Lord Jesus, O thank you
For giving yourself to me.
Make me strong to show your love
Wherever I may be.

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask you to stay
Close by me forever and love me, I pray.
Bless all of us children in your loving care
And bring us to heaven to live with you there.

I’m ready now, Lord Jesus,
To show how much I care.
I’m ready now to give your love
At home and everywhere. Amen.


Thank You,

R. Quirke
