Sacrament of First Communion



Sacramental Preparation is a function of the parish as they are celebrated as a parish community.  The Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist are celebrated in the 2nd grade year.  Preparation involves the participation of the parent and child at weekly Mass, the monthly preparation gatherings, study of the sacramental resources and the child's attendance in Saint Rita day school or PSR.  Children are expected to have been baptized and completed 1st grade religious education to be eligible for the sacraments.
