First Communion

Preparation for First Communion is a shared ministry with parents, children and catechists (teachers). Children in the second grade and older are fully initiated into the celebration of the Mass through scripture stories and prayer experiences. Child/parent sessions are held four Tuesday evenings starting in January and run through April.

Children who are preparing for the Sacraments of Penance and First Holy Communion are also enrolled in Faith Formation programs.

Adult catechists (teachers) for First Communion preparation meet every other month for planning and prayer.
