Preparation for First Eucharist (Communion) for Children

God bless our 120 children who celebrated their first Holy Communion last May!

Pictured above: Children preparing for their First Eucharist participate in learning activities at the parent and child meeting in early February. 

Parents, please review the Mass with your child, using the booklet that was provided at the meeting.  Please have your child memorize the Our Father and the Confiteor


Preparation for the Sacrament of First Eucharist normally takes place in the second grade for children baptized in the Catholic Faith. Essential for the preparation of First Eucharist is regular worship in Sunday Mass, participation in religious education, previous celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, two parent and child preparation meetings, and a commitment on the part of the parents to the religious education of their children after the first reception of the Eucharist.

A first grade religious education is normally required for the preparation of First Eucharist in the second grade.  Register for 2014-15 Religious Education Classes here to begin preparation for the Sacraments!

If your child has missed some or all grades, there is a place for your child to begin sacramental preparation. For more information regarding your older child, please contact Ellen Ward at ward [at] stfrancisa2 [dot] org at 734-821-2132.
