Light Of Christ

First Holy Communion

Scripture

They devoted themselves to the apostles'instruction and the communal life, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.

Acts 2: 42

National Catechetical Directory

Catechesis for First Communion seeks to strengthen the candidates’awareness of God’s love, of
the call to participate in Christ’s sacrifice, and of the gift of the Spirit. Children should be taught
that the Holy Eucharist is the real body and blood of Christ and what appears to be bread and
wine are actually His living body.

Is it time for your child to make his/her First Communion?

Each year the parish rejoices with a beautiful class of First Communicants! There should be at least one year of Faith Formation prior to the year of immediate preparation for First Holy Communion. This guideline is met through participation in a Catholic school or parish Faith Formation program. Each free-standing preparation program involves the collaborative effort of the parish community and the families of those presented for sacraments.

Ms. Susie Briggs can get you registered for classes.
