Eucharist is the second sacrament of initiation with Baptism being the first. It is the job and the joy of the whole parish to prepare and initiate its children into the Eucharistic life of the Church through our weekly celebration of the Mass. For this reason it is vital that the children participate in the Mass on a weekly basis. The sacrament of First Eucharist is celebrated in late Spring at all the regular Masses on a given weekend. Families may select the Mass at which they would like to celebrate.
The learning for First Eucharist focuses on the themes of gathering, celebrating, listening to God’s Word, remembering, sharing and serving.
How do I enroll my child/youth for First Eucharist?
Your child is automatically enrolled upon registration for Faith Formation in first grade. Preparation is a two year process with the sacraments celebrated in grade two. If your child is beyond first or second grade and needs to prepare for sacraments, contact the Faith Formation office at 847-8205 x239.
