Where Prayerful Hands Serve With Love

First Communion

Students customarily receive their First Holy Communion in May of their second grade year, upon the completion of a special two-year program which begins in the fall of their first grade year.  The program also prepares them to make their First Confession prior to their First Holy Communion.

Adults who are in need of the sacrament of the Eucharist should contact the Director of Faith Formation, or one of our priests or deacons, for more information on preparing to receive this sacrament.

Registration Information

All students preparing to receive the Sacrament must register for First Holy Communion in the Fall of their second grade year.  Please register your child by submitting the form that is provided here  along with a copy of their baptism certificate to the Faith Formation Office.
