1st Sacraments

1st Reconciliation and 1st Communion

Along with Baptism and Confirmation, Eucharist or Communion is part of the Sacraments of Initiation. Through these sacraments, a person is incorporated into the Church and welcomed to participate as part of the Body of Christ.

Eucharist is the ritual of celebrating the Paschal Mystery of Christ, through giving thanks and praise to God at Mass. This sacramental experience is the heart of Catholic life for the whole Church. By joining the family of Christ at weekly Eucharist, we all renew our commitment to serve Jesus Christ.
