First Communion

First Communion

Children will be registered for a sacramental preparation class only if they have attended faith formation classes consistently through the years, have transferred from another church's program or if there are special circumstances. 

The First Communion Program encompasses two sacraments which are received over one year.

  • Grade 3
    • First Penance preparation emphasizes God’s love and forgiveness when one shows sorrow for failing to make the right choice. 
    • First Holy Communion preparation involves the study of the Mass, therefore regular mass attendance for our third graders is mandatory.  The children will learn about the miracles Jesus has performed and most importantly how through the actions of the priest and the power of the Holy Spirit, the bread and wine become the body and blood of Jesus.
