First Eucharist 2018

Sacramental Preparation:
First Eucharist and First Reconciliation

Preparation and first reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist take place during the second grade. 

The Sacrament books we will use during the 2017-2018 school year will be “Reconciliation” and “Eucharist” published by RCL Benzinger.  Each chapter of the book has a family component that we encourage families to share at home.  

First Eucharist/First Reconciliation Dates to Note

Feast of Corpus Christi
Sunday, June 3, 2018

Father Jim is inviting all of our First Communicants to come to 5:00pm First Sunday evening Mass to help celebrate this special Feast Day.  Your children are encouraged to wear their First Communion attire.  This is a great opportunity for them to be a witness of the Body and Blood of Jesus!  Also, after Mass we will be having our Spaghetti Dinner.  Please join us.  All are Welcome!
