Communion

The Holy Eucharist is the most important of the seven sacraments because, in this and in no other sacrament, we receive the very body and blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ. Innumerable, precious graces come to us through the reception of Holy Communion.

Communion Preparation for First Holy Communion and Reconciliation is a two year process, Generally children begin in the First Grade. However, we have first year classes beginning in other grades. If you have a child who is ready for the first Communion or if you'd like to begin the process to receive Communion, please contact us.
