What are the essential conditions for First Reception of Eucharist?
An understanding of the Eucharist and a desire to receive Jesus are the basic conditions necessary for the reception of this sacrament. To be eligible to begin preparation the child must:
Since the parents play a vital role in the preparation of their child, they are required to attend two meetings, at which they are given instructions and a book to be completed by the child. They then share in the responsibility for preparing the child in the home.
Parents must turn in a copy of the child's baptism with the registration form or at the first parents' meeting in September.
The Sacrament of First Communion or Eucharist is celebrated as a parish group on a Saturday in the spring. There are two masses; English at 10am and at 1pm in Spanish.
