"Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life; he who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst.'"
Children typically prepare for their First Holy Communion during the second half of their second grade year and celebrate this sacrament of the Eucharist the last weekend of April. Parents are asked to join in helping their child prepare by taking them to Mass on Sunday, modeling reception of the Holy Eucharist, attending parent meetings, and working on preparation in the home as well as being involved in what is happening in their child’s religion classes.
The church recommends that children prepare for and celebrate Reconciliation prior to receiving communion. Children at St. Joseph prepare for this sacrament of healing in the fall and celebrate during Advent.
