If there is one mystery of faith around which revolves the whole Catholic liturgy, it is the Eucharist. The Sacrament of the Eucharist, in which we remember Christ’s saving death and resurrection, and receive His Body and Blood, is our principal source of spiritual nourishment. Therefore, the preparation of Catholic children and adults to frequently share in this sacrament is especially crucial to their faith lives.
Young people enrolled in the parish Religious Education program are ordinarily invited to prepare for First Eucharist when they are at least at the second grade level. Please visit our Religious Education page for more information.
For adults, reception of the Eucharist, a sign of one’s full membership in the Catholic Church, comes at the culmination of the RCIA process. Visit our RCIA page for more information.
