The Sacrament of First Holy Communion

“Then he took the bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body, which will be given for you; do this in memory of me.’ And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which will be shed for you.”

If students have previously been Baptized, First Communion is celebrated when children are in the second grade and after they have completed a period of preparation. First Communion is scheduled sometime after Easter. The date and time is usually announced in August.
 
Children (previously Baptized) who did not celebrate their First Communion with their second grade class can do so after a period of preparation as scheduled by the Sacramental Coordinator and/or Priest.
 
Adults going through the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) celebrate their First Communion during the Easter Vigil.
