The Sacrament of First Holy Communion

   The Eucharist, or Holy Communion, is another sacrament of initiation and can be received daily if desired. It is the central rite of Catholic worship. A baptized child's First Communion is usually celebrated around age eight. During the mass the priest consecrates bread and wine, the elements of the Eucharist, which are transubstantiated into the body and blood of Christ. As a memorial of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross and in a reflection of his Last Supper with his disciples, the congregation then shares in the sacred meal.

    First Holy Communion is traditionally celebrated in the spring of 3rd grade year. Two years of formal instruction in the faith is required. Both children and parents participate in the immediate preparation of this sacrament. Youth who are beyond third grade and have not celebrated this sacrament are required to be enrolled in the religious education program and will also participate in preparation for their First Communion. Please contact the Religious Education Office
