While Catholics in the West (Latin rite) today normally make their First Communion before they receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, the Sacrament of Holy Communion, the reception of Christ’s Body and Blood, was historically the third of the three sacraments of initiation.
This sacrament, which the Christian faithful should receive more frequently throughout his or her life, is a source of great graces that sanctify him or her. In other words, it helps him or her to grow in the likeness of Jesus Christ. The Sacrament of Holy Communion is also sometimes called the Holy Eucharist. Its signs are the bread and wine we receive—the Body and Blood of Christ.
First Communion – application
The holy Eucharist completes Christian initiation. For information about pre-requisites and preparing for First Communion, please call the Parish Office. First Communions are generally scheduled along with the Catholic Schools Principals.
