Congratulations to all our children and youth who have celebrated their First Communion in the month of May! We hope that you continue to come to the Lord’s Table to receive the gift of Jesus in the Eucharist.

Eucharist celebrates our life together as a community. It is the central act of worship for Catholics. In the Eucharist, Christ is most profoundly present in the Church, which gathers to hear the Word of God and to share the nourishment of Christ’s Body with on another. Eucharist is celebrated by the entire community at all mass times. Eucharist is also celebrated daily.

The celebration of First Eucharist is traditionally celebrated in the Spring of second grade. Two years of formal instruction in the faith is recommended. Both children and parents participate in the immediate preparation provided for by the Religious Education Staff.

For adults returning to the faith, instructions concerning this sacrament can be arranged by contacting the RCIA Director through the parish office at 248-651-7486.
