First Communion

The celebration of First Communion is a most significant step in the process of becoming fully initiated into the Church.  To receive the Eucharist is awe inspiring.  The person pronounces an Amen that reaches Our Lord as an acknowledgement of being a beloved son or daughter of God.  It further expresses that the person will do everything in his or her power to love as God loves.  First Communion is celebrated after preparation directed towards our younger members as well as adults.

It is important to note that the Sacraments are not purchased, any fees associated with the celebration or sacraments are administrative in nature and related to good stewardship.  $60 per year plus a $25 late fee, if registered after November 26th. Registration is now closed.

Due to COVID-19 all formation courses will be online.
