First Holy Communion
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.
The Sacrament of Holy Communion is foundational for our Catholic Faith. Through this sacrament, we not only receive the gift of sacramental grace, but we also have the unprecedented blessing of physically receiving Christ.
