First Communion Classes: Preparation for the Sacrament of First Reconciliation and First Communion can continue at home. Review Chapter 5 and 6 in the First Communion book. Parents and children are to also review together the questions in the back of BLESSED FIRST RECONCILIATION and BLESSED FIRST COMMUNION.
As we receive further instruction from the Archdiocese, parents will be updated via the parish website, as to when the Sacraments will be able to be received.

Communion is when a person receives the body and blood of Christ (Holy Eucharist) into themselves via bread and wine.
“Those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by Baptism, and configured more deeply to Christ by Confirmation, participate with the whole community in the Lord’s own sacrifice by means of the Eucharist.”
– The Catechism of the Catholic Church
In addition to preparation provided by the Catholic School Grade 2 program, our pastoral team helps prepare families for this sacramental celebration. First Communion registration usually occurs early in the calendar year.
