Receiving the Body and Blood of Christ

St. Mary and Sons of Zebedee parishes take the Eucharist very seriously. We rejoice as the children of our parishes receive their First Holy Communion during the second grade and celebrate the sacrament of Holy Eucharist during Mass each week. In this sacrament, we are able to come together in communion to receive the Eucharist as a parish family.

Receiving First Communion

First Communion preparation begins with formation classes in Grade 1, followed by preparation for the sacrament in Grade 2. The celebration of First Communion typically takes place during the Easter Season.

Sign up for First Communion by registering for religious education. Please be prepared to upload your child’s baptismal certificate if he/she was not baptized at St. Mary or Sons of Zebedee.
