“In the Eucharist, Christ gives us the very body which he gave up for us on the cross, the very blood which he poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.”

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (1365)

Students begin preparing for the sacrament of First Holy Communion after having attended one full year of formal religious instruction.  The usual grade for preparation of these sacraments is 2nd Grade.  There are two parent meetings and two retreats included in the preparation program.  The celebration of First Holy Communion is the first weekend in May.
