Eucharist

First Eucharist

The sacrament of Eucharist usually takes place during 3rd grade. Two years of  previous faith formation is required.  It is the ultimate gift of God’s love. It unites us as Catholics and strengthens us as one body of Christ each time we participate in the celebration. The four Eucharist workshops are only PART of the requirements to celebrate this LIVING sacrament. Monthly Generation of Faith attendance from September through May (9 sessions) and weekly Mass attendance is vital to ensure our commitment as parents to help guide our children to become strong followers of Christ.  Parent/guardian attendance is required for all sessions.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but might have eternal life.
