The Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life” (Lumen Gentium 9). The Eucharist is truly the Body and Blood of Jesus. This sacrament brings us into the fullness of our life in Christ, nourishing us with spiritual food.
First Communion for students is celebrated in 2nd grade. Students need to attend at least one previous year of faith formation – in the Catholic School or in a parish religious education class – in order to celebrate First Communion. Sacramental preparation is done through the Catholic School, through the child’s Wednesday PSR class, or at home with the help of the parish catechetical leader. The First Communion retreat is mandatory.
Adults and students older than 2nd grade who have not yet celebrated their First Communion should contact Father or Theresa Conley.
