“The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. The other sacraments are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself.”

A two-year preparation for receiving the Eucharist begins in first grade. In our second grade classrooms, we offer the Dynamic Catholic “Blessed” First Communion workbooks and visual aids.

The following are the special events the children attend before receiving their First Communion:

  • Second Grade Eucharist Retreat
  • Second Grade Eucharist Parent Meeting with Fr. Steve
  • Second Grade Parent & Child Eucharistic Workshop
  • Second Grade Jesus Day
  • First Holy Communion Practice
  • First Holy Communion
