First Communion Preparation begins with a Parent Workshop on Sunday, September 16, 2018, at 10:05 AM in the upper Cardinal DiNardo Center.  At this workshop, families will receive materials and formation related to both First Reconciliation and First Communion.  Here are  some other important dates to mark on your calendar:

Adaptations for Candidates with Special Needs

  • Your child can receive First Communion privately during any weekend Mass or by appointment rather than with the larger group. 
  • We can also arrange special seating for your family at a large group First Communion Mass.
  • We do have low-gluten hosts available for those who need them.
