First Eucharist


First Eucharist for children is celebrated after two years of preparation usually in the spring of the second grade. At this point first Eucharist children should know about the life of Jesus, the difference between communion and ordinary bread and wine, and show a desire to receive Christ. The teachings are handled in conjunction with our Family Faith Sharing program and parental involvement.

For children in grades 3-9 in need of the Sacrament of First Eucharist contact Diana Tomsha, Director of Religious Education for more information at x1200 or via email at ffs@stmalachychurch.org
