"The holy Eucharist completes Christian initiation. Those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by Baptism and configured more deeply to Christ by Confirmation participate with the whole community in the Lord's own sacrifice by means of the Eucharist." (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1322)

Holy Eucharist is usually given to children who have reached the age of reason (the age of 7 determined by Pope Pius X). Second grade is the usual year in First Communion is received. Please contact the Director of Religious Education for more information.
