First Eucharist

gm6lv5svbtqlu4nc3ryjbbtk18l.jpgSacramental 1st Eucharist Preparation

Children at the 2nd grade level are invited to prepare for and receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist for the first time. The preparation and reception of these Sacraments will take place over the course of a year. Children are encouraged to receive their First Reconciliation prior to receiving their First Communion so that they are able to receive the presence of Christ in the greatest state of purity.

Please note: it is okay to postpone preparation for either of these Sacraments if you do not feel your child is ready to prepare for and receive one or both of the Sacraments this year—programming will be available to children through 6th grade according to the readiness of the child.
