First Holy Communion for Children
In order to prepare for First Holy Communion in the spring, children must first successfully prepare for and receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
The immediate preparation for the celebration of the Sacrament of Holy Communion is done within the family home, with ongoing support from the parish staff. Parents of second graders (and older children who have not received the Sacrament) must attend an informational meeting that will assist them in preparing their children for First Holy Communion. Textbooks will be required to be finished upon completion of this class.
According to Archdiocesan guidelines, children preparing to celebrate their First Holy Communion must be enrolled in either a Catholic school or the parish's religious education which is Generations of Faith both during the year of preparation as well as the year immediately prior to preparation.
