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. 

First Holy Communion preparation classes are for children in Year 3 or above. They normally take place on Saturday mornings from 10.30am -12 noon, every two to three weeks, starting towards the end of September.

Registration for 2020-21 have not begun

BAPTISM CERTIFICATES – Please note that all candidates who were not baptised at St Michael and St Martin’s, Hounslow, must supply a copy of their Baptism Certificate in order to register.  The application is not complete until the Baptism Certificate from another church has been submitted. Children who have attended Walk With Me have already submitted a Baptism Certificate and therefore do not need to do so again.

Please send Baptism Certificates to Lionel at hounslowcat@rcdow.org.uk after you have registered

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