First Communion -
scheduled for June 17, 2018
at the 10:30 am and 12:30 pm Mass

First Communion should be received when the children are 7 years old.  

Please understand - that they should be in Religious Education from Kindergarten through Confirmation.

It is necessary to prepare them over a period of two years to receive
1st Communion.

So, if a child is already 7 years old and it is their first year of religious education this year, we will expect them to receive 1st Communion the following year (after their second year of religious education).
