Sacrament of the Eucharist

 

Information for First Eucharist/Communion 2018

First Eucharist, also known as “First Holy Communion”, is the sacrament of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.

Children are taught that the bread and wine become Jesus’ Body and Blood through the power of the Holy Spirit and the words of the priest. They are instructed to receive the Body and Blood with reverence and that through the Eucharist they receive strength to live as followers of Jesus.

Both the child and parent are required to attend two separate sessions – initial and follow-up group meetings at the church for preparation. Parents are the primary educators. Children and parents are given workbooks for study home. This program includes First Reconciliation which takes place in December 2017.

Children should:

Be in Year 2 of ongoing religious education in our Faith Formation Program or parish school or
be enrolled in a faith formation program taught by their parents.

If you believe your child is ready for this sacrament please contact Amy Field at afield@sjcissaquah.org or (425) 392-5516 ext. 227 for a registration form. Registration forms (including a copy of Baptismal Certificate) were due by October 6, 2017.
