First Communion

What is Holy Communion?

Holy Communion is Christ himself, coming to us through bread and wine. This meal is God’s gift of grace and forgiveness, given for all.

Holy Communion instruction is available for kids in Grades K-5. Parents choose the appropriate age for their children to receive communion. Children should complete First Communion by the end of 5th grade to participate in Holy Communion during confirmation in Grades 6-8.
