First Eucharist

A child preparing for the sacrament of First Eucharist must be registered in the Parish School of Religion. Preparations begin in the early spring of the second grade year. Preparations for First Eucharist begin with a Family Retreat. Parents and catechists work closely together to prepare the child for the reception of this sacrament celebrated in May. Parents are required to attend parent meetings as well as a scheduled rehearsal, picture and reception night. Policy is that a child must have one year prior religious education before second grade.

*Parents of children older than the second grade who have not yet been prepared for First Reconciliation and/or Eucharist will need to speak with the Director of Religious Education.
