The Sacrament of First Communion is for students in our Religious Education Program and parish school.

Preparation for First Communion involves gatherings and formation opportunities designed to deepen both the parent and child understanding of the Sacrament of Eucharist as well as enabling parents to guide their child into gaining greater understanding and meaning of the Eucharist in their daily lives.

 This sacrament is usually celebrated with the family in the month of April or May.
