Sacramental Preparation

First Communion

A child’s First Communion is an important and special milestone in the life of a Catholic family.  Catholics all over the world are called to participate in the holy sacrifice of the Mass, and to receive the sacrament of the Eucharist.

It is a two-year process to prepare a child to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist typically beginning in 1st grade to receive the sacraments in 2nd grade. First Reconciliation is held the last Saturday of January. First Communion is held in May on Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend. 

Special programs are available for baptized Catholic children who are in grade 3 or higher and have not yet celebrated these sacraments. Please look for more information under RCIC.
