Hi everyone

My son is starting his Holy Communion and is required to find out information of the Saint that is his name (Henry or middle name Thomas).

I have searched online for ages and cannot find anything about these saints, just information on churches etc.

Can anyone suggest a website that I can find out about them at all please ?

As usual I have left it to the last minute and he has to write it all out tonight !

Really appreciate any help/advice.
Thank you :-)

Try googling Thomas Becket.

Famous St Thomases:

Thomas apostle

Thomas Becket

Thomas Aquinas

Thomas More

This is the only St Henry I could find:

Henry

Bookmark the site - I use it for reference for all sorts of things!

There is a saints website but cannot remember it, wikipedia is usually pretty good though.

I was hoping to find a 'child friendly' history of either St Henry or St Thomas but it just seems non existent. I did try looking on Ask Kids site but nothing. I will work through the sites MaryBS kindly suggested and convert to child friendly !

what about this one for a children's take on St. Thomas Becket?

Do you live any where near Kent? Canterbury cathedral have a good kids trail with all the details.

It might be a long shot but have you looked on the Vatican website for info on Saints? I'm sure they've got it in several
languages.

I'm not sure if there was a St Henry?

Try thiswww.catholic.org/saints/saint.php?saint_id=124

might this be helpful ?

There will definitely be child-friendly versions of the life of Thomas Becket in book form (grew up near Canterbury and, as silverbirch said, he's all over the place there).

You could take a chance on there being a Henry or Thomas in here
