Sacrament of First Holy Communion

“Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Mark 10:14

The children study Penance and the Holy Eucharist in preparation for reception of these sacraments. The importance of the Blessed Trinity is explored with the children and they learn that Jesus is both human and divine. The Mass and the special Eucharistic meal are studied in depth.

The prayer goal is the “Act of Contrition.”
