First Holy Communion for Children
We work with families to meet any special academic, spiritual or physical needs so that all may have access to the sacraments. Please communicate any and all special circumstances so we may do all we can to assist.
Note: Knowledge of Catholic Faith and prayers is ordinarily assessed using tests, which can be taken as many times as necessary to gain mastery. If this is not a feasible option for a candidate, they may meet with the Pastor to allow him to determine the readiness for the Sacrament.
FIRST HOLY COMMUNION (& RECONCILIATION)
- Is held in the spring (usually the first week of May)
- Candidates for First Communion must have a solid foundation in the Catholic Faith before enrolling in the First Communion Program
Must have completed a full year of age-appropriate Faith Formation (this is different based on the age of the student)
It is recommended that families begin Catechesis at age 3
- Candidates must be enrolled by August the year they are to receive their First Holy Communion
- Teens and Pre-Teens who have not received their 1st Communion will complete our "RCIA(T)-Inquiry & Catechumen" programs
