Sacrament of First Holy Communion

(Sacrament of the Eucharist, Holy Sacrifice, Lord’s Supper)

“Take this all of you and eat it. This is my body, which will be given up for you.  Take this, all of you, and drink it.  This is the cup of my blood.”

Preparation for Holy Communion is now a combined program. Children will receive preparation for First Reconciliation and First Communion in the same school year beginning in September. As this is a COMBINED program, your child is required to participate in First Reconciliation program prior to First Eucharist.  If your child has already completed First Reconciliation, and only needs Sacrament of First Eucharist, please contact the Sacrament Office.

NEW SACRAMENT PREPARATION PROGRAM

WHO SHOULD REGISTER:

This program is open to all children in grade 2 or higher who have received the sacrament of Baptism or Profession of Faith, and First Reconciliation in the Roman Catholic Church.

Children preparing for First Communion now receive preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist in the same school year. As this is a combined program, if your child has not received First Holy Communion they must register for both sacraments. On the online registration form, please check the box: Combined Program. Even if your child is older than Gr 2 and is registering for First Communion, please check the Combined Program box, as they must also register for both sacraments.

To register, complete the online registration form and submit and email a copy of the child’s baptism certificate or Profession of Faith certificate to stpaulssacraments@shaw.ca Payment can be made either by cheque or cash (exact change please) and is due at the Parent Information Session.

Registration Fee is to help offset the cost of materials, and program books for your child:

Gr 2 Combined First Reconciliation and First Eucharist $50
