First Communion

As Catholics we believe in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. We believe it is both a sacrifice and a meal that nourishes us spiritually, bringing us closer to God. “At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice on the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and his resurrection; a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet ‘in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is give to us,’ (1323, Catechism of the Catholic Church).”

First Eucharist is celebrated by students in second grade and above. Students must be enrolled in the parish religious education program or the parish school. First Eucharist Masses are scheduled in May. Baptismal certificate is required to enroll in First Communion classes. Registration for classes begins in August.
