First Eucharist (Holy Communion)
The reception of Holy Communion for the first time is celebrated at the second grade here at Blessed Trinity. Older students who have not yet received the Eucharist for the first time are placed with their peers in age appropriate settings during one of our Faith Formation for Children and Youth sessions.
Preparation for this Sacrament is a year long process, including Religious Education classes for the student and parent-child Sacramental Preparation sessions that help to encourage communication and dialog. The children also attend an age-appropriate retreat experience prior to reception of the Sacrament of the Eucharist. First Eucharist is celebrated within the context of a regularly scheduled Weekend Mass on Mother's Day. Preparation for the Sacrament begins with enrollment in our Faith Formation.
