“The most august Sacrament is the Most Holy Eucharist in which Christ the Lord himself is contained, offered and received, and by which the Church continually lives and grows. The Eucharistic sacrifice, the memorial of the death and resurrection of the Lord, in which the sacrifice of the cross is perpetuated through the ages, is the summit and source of all worship and Christian life, which signifies and effects the unity of the people of God and brings about the building up of the body of Christ. Indeed, the other sacraments and all the ecclesiastical works of the apostolate are closely connected with the Most Holy Eucharist and ordered to it.” (Cf. CIC, c. 897).
Preparation for First Communion is a two year process. It requires one prior consecutive year of religious education through the parish faith formation program before the year of preparation for the sacraments. This usually takes place in first and second grade, with the child receiving First Communion at the end of his second grade year. To register your child please download and print a registration form here and return it to Michelle Kuhner at the parish office or via email at [email protected]
