Default Is Anglican first communion valid?

My daughter who was baptized a catholic, made her first holy communion in the
Anglican church. She attends mass on Sunday's in her local catholic church and is keen
to take communion. Is she allowed to partake in the sacraments of reconciliation and
the holy Eucharist even though she was instructed in the Anglican church? Please advise.

Default Re: Receiving holy communion

Your daughter would have to enroll in religious education classes before receiving communion. The Catholic Church does not recognize the validity of Anglican ordination and thus considers its sacraments of eucharist and confession to be invalid. As far as the Catholic Church sees it, you daughter has not receive first communion. And given the differences between Catholic and Anglican theological understandings of the Eucharist, the Church would not consider her properly prepared for communion at this time.
