Jesus said to them ‘I am the Bread of Life; he who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.    John 6:35

 

First Eucharist or First Holy Communion is the common name for a person’s first reception of the sacrament of the Eucharist. Roman Catholics recognize the importance of this event because the Eucharist is the central focus of the sacramental life of the Catholic Church.  A child, baptized as an infant into the family of God now takes a place at the Lord’s table. This is a momentus event for the child, the family and the parish community as a whole. 

Preparing for First Communion

Sacramental preparation for First Communion typically starts at 7 years of age or usually 2nd grade and takes place in two years. Preparation begins in the early fall and involves both parents and children. Classes generally meet Tuesday and Wednesday early evenings.

Older then 8?  Parents of those children who are older than 8 and wish to baptized should learn more by contacting our parish office.
