“I am the Bread of Life”    John 6:35

What is the Eucharist?

Eucharist is the center of our Christian lives. As the Body and Blood of Christ, the Eucharist is the “source and summit of Christian life  – from which all other sacraments, and all Christian life,  flows and returns.  As Spiritual food, the Eucharist – “communion” –  nourishes our faith and deepens communion with both God and community.

First Communion

For children attending one of our Catholic schools, sacramental preparation is a part of the 2nd grade school curriculum.

For children attending public school, and those who are being homeschooled, sacramental preparation occurs through our Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (RCIC) program.

If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact Anna Gravesande. 


If you’re an adult seeking to receive the Eucharist and thinking about becoming Catholic, we invite you to explore the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)
