We share prayer, scripture, and our faith in the risen Lord through the Eucharist. It becomes a communal meal with those we love and who believe as we do.

First Eucharist, also known as First Communion is a Sacrament of Initiation, inviting us to come to the table of the Lord and receive His most sacred Body and Blood. Children wishing to prepare for this sacrament should register with the Religious Education office.
A parent or guardian must attend the General Sacramental Session held in October. Preparation for the Sacrament of Reconciliation is a prerequisite to prepare for First Eucharist.


The children strive to really welcome Jesus into their hearts in the this special way. The parents, at home, participate in their child's preparation for the Sacrament of Eucharist, with help and guidance from our parish.

Parents of children preparing for the Sacrament of First Eucharist must attend two meetings at which the theology of the sacrament is explained and ways in which the family can best prepare for this experience are presented. At these same meeting times, children attend preparation workshops.

For more detailed information regarding dates and times of required meetings/sessions, please see the weekly bulletin announcements or contact the Religious Education Office. If you have not already registered your child for this sacrament, please call 621-8133 and request a Registration Form for First Communion.
