First Communion

The preparation for the sacraments begins at home throughout the early life of the child and continues throughout a child’s entire religion program. It is intensified in the school program near the time of the child’s reception of the sacraments. 
Preparation for First Holy Communion takes place in second grade beginning with a parent meeting in February. Parents and children attend a mini-retreat in the spring. Parents will accompany their child at individual interviews held in April. All students receive the Sacrament of First Holy Communion in the spring.
