First Communion


Holy Communion is the first opportunity for our children to receive our Blessed Lord, substantially present in the Holy Eucharist. Students typically receive their First Holy Communion during second grade, but we also welcome older children that have not yet received their First Holy Communion.

Preparation includes; class participation, reconciliation, parent meetings, attendance at Mass, completion of First Communion books and practice time. The traditional grade level for a student to celebrate First Communion is second grade. We also welcome students of other grade levels (older than second grade) that have not celebrated First Communion. Students in second grade that have not attended first grade classes may celebrate with the second graders and participate in activities throughout the school year.
