Catechesis for children seeks to strengthen their awareness of the Father’s love, of the call to participate in Christ’s sacrifice, and of the gift of the Spirit.
Children should be taught that the Holy Eucharist is the real Body And Blood of Christ, and what appears to be bread and wine is actually His Living Body.
Catechesis for the Sacrament of First Holy Communion is conducted separately from introductory catechesis for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, since each sacrament deserves its own concentrated preparation. (NCD # 122)
We recognize that parents are the primary educators of their children; thus, they are enabled in our family process to educate their children in the preparation for the reception of First Holy Eucharist. Children preparing to receive the Sacrament of Eucharist must have a minimum of 1 year previous religious education in a CCE or day school program and must be currently enrolled and actively participating in a CCE or day school. Preparation for First Reconciliation must precede preparation for First Holy Communion.
