also known as First Communion
In this program, parents, YOU become the actual teacher of your child, but we guide you through every step. This is a memorable time in your child's life - and the memories you make during this preparation period will be cherished for a long time.
There are a total of 6 preparation sessions plus the celebration of the sacrament itself. You’ll receive a helpful guide and your child will receive a beautiful text. With our leader assisting, you and your child will work through this text. You’ll be amazed at how much you’ll enjoy this process!
Feel free to use the Growing Up Catholic website. The work you do with your child is so vital to his or her faith! And you’ll find that your own faith is enriched by this process as well. You’ll find this at GrowingUpCatholic.com.
Welcome. It is time to set out on another great adventure together.
One of the greatest blessings you will ever experience in this life is the Eucharist. So this journey toward your First Communion is very important.
God is inviting you to a great banquet. You are blessed.
You are blessed in so many ways. But every blessing you experience flows from the first blessing. You are a child of God; this is the original blessing.
And now God wants to bless you with the Eucharist!
When you count your blessings before you go to bed tonight, remember to include your favorite foods, the people you love, your talents, your favorite activities and places, and most of all God for giving you all these blessings.
