1st Holy Communion
“I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.” John 6:51
In the holy Eucharist we reach the high-point of our lives as Catholics for we receive our Lord and Savior. Our preparation for First Holy Communion involves parents and children through attending mandatory parent meetings, collaborating on the children’s assignments, and growing together in knowledge and love for Jesus in the holy Eucharist. Families are highly encouraged to make their participation Sunday Mass the central aspect of their child’s sacramental preparation.
“O Sacrament Most Holy, O Sacrament Divine, All Praise and All Thanksgiving Be Every Moment Thine.
