Sacraments - First Eucharist for Children

Catechesis for the reception of First Eucharist takes place in the third grade, or the third year that the student is in the Faith Formation program. There are special programs that prepare the child to receive First Communion. As in the reception of First Reconciliation, the parents are required to take an active role in their child’s preparation. Celebration of First Eucharist may be delayed if a family is not regularly participating in Sunday Mass.
