First Holy Communion

First Holy Communion is considered one of the holiest and most important occasions in a person’s Catholic life.  It means that person is receiving the Sacrament of the Eucharist, the Body and Blood of Our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Most of our children receive this Sacrament in the second grade; following the Sacrament of Penance.
