Children are encouraged to prepare for the Sacrament of First Eucharist (Communion) during second grade. 

We provide a First Eucharist preparation program which consists of Faith Formation classes, two parent sessions, and a mini-retreat with children and parents.  First Eucharist is usually held in the Spring of second grade.  However, if your child is older and still needs to complete First Eucharist, please contact the office and we will modify to specific needs.  First Eucharist celebrations take place at all Masses after Easter.  Families will sign up individually for date and Mass of choice.


    
Please contact the Faith Formation Office at (585) 594-1441 with any questions!
