First Holy Communion

Registration for our First Holy Communion Programme 2024-2025 is open until Friday 30th August 2024.

Our First Holy Communion preparation is for children in years 3, 4 or 5 (in September 2024). You must be a Parishioner of Saint Benedict’s Parish. We aren’t able to accommodate families outside of the Parish, due to numbers, but your local Parish will be delighted to have you prepare with them. If you are unsure which Parish is your local one, you can email us (

For registering at Saint Benedict’s – click on the Gold Square below which says “Register Here.”

Note – when you’re filling in the online form, make sure you go through all the pages by clicking next (otherwise we won’t receive your form). 

We have a fee of £70 to cover the costs of the preparation. Below you will find a Yellow Square which says “£70 Contribution”, just click on that to make your contribution. The contributions cover the digitalisation of the preparation, the Catechetical Coordinator’s role, the First Holy Communion Masses with the music and print outs etc., and the Family Prayer Events we have as part of the programme etc. 

Sometimes parents want to contribute a little more to help our Catechetical team do even more to reach others. If you feel called to do this then there is that option when you click on the Yellow button below.

If you would like to speak to us about our bursaries please do not hesitate to get in touch. You can send an email to our Catechetical Coordinator –
