Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me and I have life because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on me will have life because of me.– John 6:54-57
Diocesan guidelines require two years of formal faith formation before the reception of First Holy Communion. Preparation for the Sacrament of First Holy Communion begins in 1st grade. Our program offers classes for children in 1st grade, and older children, preparing to receive this Sacrament.
First Holy Communions are celebrated in the Spring at St. Joseph.
