Preparation for First Holy Communion is normally a two year process. Students must have attended one full year prior to the reception of the sacraments.





  • The children that attended Catechism or Catholic School the previous year, and are in the 3rd grade or above are eligible for 1st Communion. 
  • Catholic school children will also need to participate in our First Eucharist retreats and in some cases attend our Sacrament Classes. 

            

 



  • Parent sessions are mandatory and failure to attend these sessions may result in the postponement of the student’s reception of the Sacrament.

 

  • 4th – High School students who wish to receive the Sacraments need to attend their regular Religion classes plus additional classes to prepare for First Eucharist and Reconciliation.

 

  • The additional sacrament classes will begin in

January
