1st eucharist

1st Communion Preparation begins in late winter each year with the celebration of 1st Eucharist scheduled during the Easter season.

Our weekly bulletin and spoken announcements will announce when registration opens.

Families are expected to be registered with the parish and be regular and active attendees.

1st Communion Preparation can also occur throughout the year within our home-based program.

2019 Registration Form (Please print out, complete, and return to Andrew Pump  with $30  suggested donation, or whatever you can give):  1st Communion Registration will be available in December.

A copy of your child’s baptismal record will be needed as well. 

For 2019, First Communion registration will be held mid-December to the end of January and classes will begin, both for parents and children, on February 17, 2019 and run until April 14, 2019 (No classes on March 10 or 17). Classes will take place from 10:30-11:20am in the Upstairs Lounge for the Children and the Main Floor Meeting room for parents. The children will be dismissed following Communion and parents will attend their class immediately following the end of Mass.  Parents need to supply a copy of their child’s baptismal certificate upon registration.

Students will receive a workbook entitled, We Share in the Eucharist which contains a family section to be completed at home.

The First Communion Celebration will take place on Sunday, April 28 at the 9:30am Mass.

First Reconciliation will take place during the Reconciliation retreat on Saturday, June 1, 2019 from 10-12 a.m. in the Church. If your child is not able to make the retreat, you are welcome to contact Fr. Richard and set up a time for your child to celebrate First Reconciliation.
