First Communion

First Communion requires some religious education prior to receiving the Sacrament. Generally, preparation for First Communion can vary depending on your child’s age and maturity. Contact the CCD office for more information.

First Holy Communion Classes:
Children in elementary school or in junior high or high school learn their prayers, the most important truths and principles of our Catholic Faith contained in the Apostles’ Creed, the Catechesis on what we must do, summarized in the Ten Commandments, and on what we must receive, the Sacraments. The focus for these classes is on the Sacraments of Confession or Penance and the Holy Eucharist.
