THE BODY OF CHRIST

Then he took the bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body, which will be given for you; do this in memory of me.’ And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which will be shed for you.’
— Luke 22:19-20

I would like my child to receive First Holy Eucharist

Is your child ready to receive Jesus in the Eucharist? We are here to help them prepare! First Confession and First Eucharist are offered according to the readiness of the child, usually around 2nd or 3rd grade. 

First Eucharist classes are held on Sundays or Mondays. We encourage children to have at least one year of catechism prior to beginning First Eucharist Preparation. First Eucharist is celebrated every Spring, and the church hosts a parish-wide celebration after mass.

As a parent, you are your child’s primary teacher of love and holiness. We ask that you show them that Jesus is at the center of your family life and commit to attending mass every week.
