Sacrament of the Eucharist

First Eucharist/Communion

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.

Parents are the primary educators. Children and parents are given workbooks for study home. Both the child and parent are required to attend two separate sessions – initial and follow up group meetings at the church for preparation. For more information, please contact Amy Field at afield@sjcissaquah.org or (425) 392-5516 ext. 227.
