FIRST HOLY COMMUNION 

The Sacrament of the Eucharist is one of the seven Sacraments of the Church. It is the Sacrament of the Body and Blood of our Saviour Jesus Christ. It is the gift of Christ Himself that we may share His Body and always remember the sacrifice of the Cross.

The First Holy Communion preparation course is for children in Year 3 or above. Registration is done in the summer and the course runs from Sep to May.

Children who are not in Catholic schools must first complete the Walk With Me programme before applying for First Holy Communion preparation. Please visit the Walk With Me page for further details. 

Registration for 2021-22 is now closed.

If you have any questions please email Lionel: hounslowcat@rcdow.org.uk.
