First Communion Preparation

1st eucharist

First Communion Preparation is a joint program at St. Joseph’s that includes First Reconciliation.  First Communion Preparation classes that take place in the late winter each year with the celebration of First Eucharist on the Second Sunday of the Easter season.

Registration for the program opens in January each year.

Families are expected to be registered with the parish and be regular and active attendees. Children need to be at least 7 years of age (usually Gr.2).

If you have any questions or special circumstances, please reach out to our Faith Formation Coordinator, Paul Dansereau at or 613-233-4095, x 235. We always try our hardest to accommodate busy or traveling families. In these special circumstances we can prepare your child for First Communion throughout the year with a home-based program. After completing that program we can then schedule and celebrate your child’s First Eucharist during any of our weekend or weekday masses.
