Holy Communion is the reception of Jesus Christ in the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. It is "the source and summit of the Christian life." Just as it is necessary to nourish our bodies with material food, so also it is necessary to nourish our souls with spiritual food. Our Divine Savior so loved us that He gave us Himself in the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist; He gave us His own Body and Blood as food for our souls.
Preparation to receive first Holy Communion is offered through the Religious Education program. Children must be baptized and at least 7 years old or in the 2nd grade. The reception of first Holy Communion takes place in late April or early May. Students should register no later than September 15th each year. Weekly attendance of preparation classes is mandatory.
