Respected Sir/Madam,

Good day to you all!

My family is Roman Catholic. I have two kids ages 15 and 17 and I would like them to receive their First Holy Communion at Rome next year, in May 2020.

  • Is it possible?

We would really be happy and fortunate if my kids could receive their First Communion on the same day. I can furnish a letter from my parish priest. We belong to the diocese of Coimbatore in Southern India. My parish is St. Catherine Church in Tirupur City.

Please let me know if any documents that have to be submitted.

Thank you,

Kind regards,

Dear John,

For a request like this, the best place to start is your diocese of Coimbatore.

Diocese of Coimbatore

If you have a friend in a similar situation who does not know their diocese, they can look up their diocesan website up at Catholic Hierarchy.

We have no contact with the Holy Father or any Vatican officials. If you have no luck there, the best I can do is recommend trying to contact the Vatican through our Where do I write page:

Where do I write? — Vatican Mailing Addresses

Sorry, that's the best I can do.


Please report any and all typos or grammatical errors.
