All First Holy Communion candidates must be at least 8 years old by the 31st August 2018 (Year 3 in school).

There are five First Confession and First Holy Communion programmes in various parts of the diocese. Up to the present they are located in Harrow & Wealdstone Parish between September and Christmas, West Green and Southall between Christmas and Easter, and Clapton Park and Acton between Easter and the Summer.
There is no provision in Hertfordshire at present, though an arrangement can be made, if possible, if there is a sufficient number on request by a Parish Priest or group of Travellers.
Each programme consists of 10 lessons in 10 weeks with slight variations if necessary. Traveller Children with special needs can be referred to St Joseph’s, Hendon for Sacramental preparation.
