First Holy Communion

Grades 1 – 6

Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist is a two-year process that typically begins in 1st grade with the children receiving these sacraments in May of their 2nd year.

In addition to attending Mass and participating in the Weekly At-Home Program and Family Events, children who are preparing for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist will have additional requirements.

Contact Stacy Austin with any questions about grades 2 – 6 sacramental preparation.
