Catholics believe the Eucharist, or Communion, is both a sacrifice and a meal. We believe in the real presence of Jesus, who died for our sins. As we receive Christ’s Body and Blood, we also are nourished spiritually and brought closer to God.
Please see our Mass Times for opportunities to receive the Eucharist.
For ministry to the sick and home-bound, please see Pastoral Ministry
First Holy Communion
First Communion is available for children in grade 2 or older who have completed the First Reconciliation program.
A child or youth must be currently enrolled in a parish Religious Education program or a Catholic School and have completed one year of Religious Education the previous year. The parent orientation meeting is held in January and a parent/child session follows with the sacramental celebrations scheduled after Easter.
For further information regarding scheduling and planning, please contact the Religious Education Office - 410-392-3551.
