Our programmes leading up to first Holy Communion have now started. However, if you are interested in joining a group to learn how we, as parents, can be the first educators of our children, please contact Kelly at the presbytery 020 8946 0305 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEASE COULD PARENTS BRING POST IT NOTES AND A PEN TO THE FIRST PARENT SESSION. PLEASE ALSO BRING CASH OF £35 IF YOU ARE ABLE TO MAKE A DONATION TOWARDS THE COST OF THE COURSE.
Please find below information about the preparation process for your child's First Holy Communion and Reconciliation.
The parish is moving to a more family-based, parent-led process and therefore we are offering some information meetings for parents to learn more about why we are adopting this process and how it will work. We held four information sessions about this new approach. If you were not able to attend and have questions please email me on the address below.
Registration has been done online using Survey Monkey. If you did not register your child but are still interested in the Family of Faith programme please email me. The Family of Faith programme is not exclusively for children who intend to make their First Holy Communion. If you and your child would like to attend for wider spiritual development we would be delighted.

The preparation process is based in family catechesis. As promised at your child’s baptism, you are to be “the first and best teachers to your children in the ways of the Faith”. To assist you in that role, we will utilise Sophia Institute’s A Family of Faith, Catechesis for the Whole Family. The vision for A Family of Faith is strong Catholic families in which children learn the joys of following Jesus Christ and the truths of their Faith through the witness of Christian life given by their parents
