Hill Croft School


Hill Croft provides sacramental preparation for children of the Catholic faith within the school to enable them to receive both the sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation.

The sacramental preparation of the students involves both the home and the school in contributing to the Religious Education of the student during this special time.  By working together, we aim to ensure the sacrament is an Important, Happy, School and Family occasion.

We have been preparing the students in receiving both sacraments for several years and we currently link up with students from Rosstulla School. We organise sacramental preparation on a year about basis, with one year being a First Holy Communion year and the next being a Confirmation year.

When making our Sacraments, we hold the service in our school parish of St. Mary’s on the Hill, with the celebrant being the Parish Priest.  It is a small service with only our students and Rosstulla students and families attending.

We look forward to celebrating Confirmation with our pupils and their families on Saturday 20th April  2024 at 11am in St. Bernard’s, Glengormley. 



We are so proud of the seven children who made their First Holy Communion today in St. Bernard’s Church.  It was a very special occasion for both our school and families alike.  We’d like to thank Father Pat for giving our pupils and their families a beautiful, relaxed and personal service.  We hope everyone enjoys the rest of their celebrations over the long weekend.
