First Eucharist is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation. It is the Body and Blood of Jesus Himself and food for our journey of faith.
At St. Monica, children receive two years of sacramental preparation before receiving the Eucharist, regardless of what age or grade level students enter into the program. Typically children receive First Eucharist in grade two. However, special sessions are designed for children who enter the program after grade two. Students must be enrolled in our Faith Formation process to participate. Go to stmonica.net/faithformation for more information about the program and how to register.
Adults participate in our Initiation process to prepare to receive Eucharist for the first time. Visit stmonica.net/rcia for more information.
