First Eucharist is normally celebrated in 2
nd grade. Child must have completed 1
st grade religious education studies. If this was completed at another parish, a letter acknowledging participation must be submitted.
Children in grades 3-5 must be in their
second consecutive year of participation in religious education/faith formation in order to enter the special preparation process that leads to the celebrationof the Sacrament of Reconciliatio & First Eucharist celebrated in the month of May.
The role of parents in forming Christian values in their children is irreplaceable.
We are partners with parents in the preparation of the children for first Reconciliation and first Eucharist.
Parents of children in preparation for First Communion therefore must participate:
- in workshops to update their understanding of the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.
- in preparing their child at home with materials that are explained at the workshop
- in parent-child retreat days.
