First Communion

first communionGetting Prepared

Families requesting sacramental preparation must have their child enrolled in either the school or the Faith Formation classes for the set preparation period, generally one year, which is the year during which the Sacrament is to be received. Families requesting sacramental preparation need to attend a minimum of one parent/student meeting as part of the preparation. God’s Love and Forgiveness Retreat is offered in January to all students preparing to receive Reconciliation for the first time, which precedes the celebration of First Communion.  First Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of May. For more information, please contact the Youth Faith Formation Coordinator, Vanessa Booth, at the parish office.
