What is the Eucharist? Here are some great videos that help us understand the importance of the Eucharist:
The Sacrament of First Holy Communion (First Eucharist) is normally celebrated when a child is in the 2nd grade. Preparation classes are held in February/March, and the sacrament is celebrated a few weeks after Easter.
Children must be in some type of religious formation program in addition to preparation classes for the sacrament.
