FIRST HOLY COMMUNION

The Eucharist is a fire that inflames us, that, like lions breathing fire, we may retire from the altar being made terrible to the devil. 

- St. John Chrysostom

First Holy Communion is an incredibly special event in which our children encounter Jesus – body, blood, soul and divinity – for the first time. As Catholics we believe that the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian Faith, because it is through the Eucharist that Jesus gives us the grace to be His followers by giving us His very flesh to nourish us.

 

First Communion is preceded by the Sacrament of Penance, also known as confession or reconciliation. In the Sacrament of Penance, our children learn the important connection of removing the sinful areas of our lives, thereby remaining in friendship with God, in order to receive Him worthily in Holy Communion.

 

The 2nd grade classes of the parish and school will be prepared to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion at a scheduled Mass in the Spring.
