Along with the sacraments of Baptism and First Holy Communion , Confirmation is one of 3 sacraments of initiation. It is through these sacraments that we become full members of the Church.
We receive the Holy Eucharist for the first time during First Holy Communion. It is considered one of the holiest and most important occasions in a Roman Catholic person’s life. The Holy Eucharist refers to Christ’s body, blood, soul, and divinity that are truly present in the consecrated host and wine (now called the Precious Body and Blood of Christ) on the altar. For Catholics, there is nothing greater than to receive Jesus, truly present, in the Eucharist at Mass. Most Catholic children receive their First Holy Communion when they are 7 or 8 years old as this is considered the age of reason.
If you would like to enroll your child in our First Holy Communion Preparation Program, please contact Mr. Edwin Perez ( Director of Catholic Education) at (718)639-5169 or firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a 2-year program.
Adults can receive Holy Communion for the first time when they have met all of the Catholic Church’s requirements. If you are an adult,18 years or older, who is seeking more information on how to become a member of the Catholic Church, or if you are baptized Catholic and have never received First Holy Communion, please contact Mr. Edwin Perez ( Director of Catholic Education) at (718)639-5169 or email@example.com. and he will guide you in this process.
