First Holy Communion

UPDATE

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION

We have now concluded the conferring of the Sacrament on the 2019-20 candidates. Please keep them in your prayers, that they may grow in their relationship with Christ to know God, love God and serve God.

Registrations for the 2020-21 preparation course will begin in November. Prior announcements will be made in the newsletter. You will need a copy of your child’s Baptism certificate when you register, if your child was not baptised in this Parish.

Please note that children studying in non-Catholic schools must complete the Walk With Me programme before registering for the First Holy Communion preparation course.

Meanwhile, you will find links to online resources to keep your children engaged in the Sunday Liturgy and for Daily Prayers on the ‘Children’s Liturgy’ page. Links to basic prayers are attached below.

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 2019-2020 is now closed

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

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