Children must receive the sacraments of Baptism and Reconciliation prior to First Eucharist.
First Eucharist (Holy Communion)
About gr. 2 or age 7
Children must be baptized prior to celebrating other sacraments. If baptism is needed, please contact the priests in the parish office.
The Archdiocese recommends that children celebrate the Sacrament of First Reconciliation prior to celebrating the Sacrament of First Eucharist. Both of these sacraments are usually celebrated in the same year.
The Church recognizes parents as the first and best teachers of the faith for their children (Second Vatican Council, Gravissum Educationis, 28 October 1965; Saint John Paul II, Letter to Families, 2 February 1994). The parish will support you with excellent resources and guidance.
We will have more information once we have hired our new Pastoral Assistant. Please check back here in early October and check our bulletin. God bless.

-Please attach a copy of your child’s BAPTISM certificate unless they were baptized at Holy Family Parish. -There is no charge for the workbooks.
