Children in our school or Religious Education program prepare and then receive the sacrament of their First Holy Communion in the spring of their second grade. Adults who wish to receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion, will do so through RCIA.
Preparing for First Communion
Full, conscious and active participation (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy #14) at Sunday Eucharist every week is the most powerful and most significant means parents have for preparing their child to receive Communion for the first time. Good Sunday habits provide the foundation for a Sacramental life and is expected of all our First Communicants.
When selecting your child's attire, choose clothing that will reflect the dignity and joy of the occasion. Schoolbelles, Mateja's, JC Penney and many other department stores carry traditional First Communion attire.
Boys: suit jacket, dress pants, white dress shirt and tie.
Girls: white dress and veil or headpiece, white tights or anklets. Shoulders should be covered. No gloves or purses in Church.
