First Communion

First Communion Catechism Program

Unfortunately, due to the aftermath of COVID and some logistics, the First Holy Communion 2022-2023 will be done ONLINE via pre-recorded videos. Our instructors are also available via phone, email or Zoom.

Note: First Confession is mandatory in order for candidates to receive First Holy Communion. Hence, Parts 1 and 2 in the program.
