What is the Eucharist?  Here are some great videos that help us understand the importance of the Eucharist:

Sacraments 201 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.

For older children catching up on their sacraments or wishing to become Catholic please contact Ellen Vanden Eykel​.

Children must be in some type of religious formation program in addition to preparation classes for the sacrament.
