Second Grade Catechesis

First Communion – preparation 2023-2024

More information will be forthcoming!

Our preparation for First Communion outside of Family Catechesis will mostly take place in the home. Your children will learn from you, their priest (Fr. Dan) and their faith community what receiving Jesus for the first time, and continually, means and looks like in their lives. It is the responsibility for the parents as the “primary catechist” for their children, to help their children know and foster what a relationship with Jesus looks like.

Parents and children will need to attend Family Catechesis sessions to be prepared in order to receive this Sacrament.
