Program The first Communion program consists of four family sessions held monthly from January through April; children attend these sessions with their parent(s) or another responsible adult. The preparation sessions are primarily parent-led and include group activities and adult learning. In order to celebrate their first Communion, children need to attend Mass and participate regularly in the weekly faith formation program, attend the four sacramental preparation sessions, and have previously celebrated the sacraments of baptism and reconciliation.
Registration Preparation for first Communion usually takes place when a child is in second grade, although older children may be enrolled in the program upon parent request. Children in the second grade are automatically registered for the first Communion program when they are registered in the parish’s weekly K-8 faith formation program.
Celebration First Communion is celebrated in late April or early May.
