First Communion

The sacrament of First Communion is offered yearly. Students should be enrolled and attending their regular grade level class and have had two previous years of formal Catholic religious education prior to being eligible to attend sacramental classes. A contact letter will be sent prior to the sacramental classes.

This year we will  prepare students, third grade and older, for first reconciliation in the fall and for first communion in the spring. Whether to receive these sacraments is a personal decision for each family because it is not necessary to receive both sacraments in one year; however, the students are required by Diocesan policy and Code of Canon Law to receive Reconciliation prior to the Eucharist.

First Reconciliation and First Communion candidates will meet once a month with parents for their sacramental preparation beginning in September from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. in the parish hall. Please note that children must attend two years of religious education before sacramental preparation.
