John 6:54-56 “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them.”
The Sacrament of First Holy Communion celebrates the reception of Jesus Christ, our Risen Lord for the first time, who seeks to dwell always in our hearts. The regular reception of this sacrament strengthens our bond with Christ and the community that gathers each weekend.
Children ages 8 and above, who are baptized begin preparation to receive the sacrament of First Eucharist (Holy Communion) after having prepared for and celebrated the sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession).
Registration for First Communion preparation takes place during the month of September in the parish.
First Communion classes go from September to June after the 9 a.m. Mass from 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., and normally the First Communion day will be on the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ or Corpus Christi.
