Children in second grade or higher prepare for the celebration of First Holy Communion through catechetical classes, family workshops, rites, and parent meetings. Children are required to attend either P.R.E. classes or have been enrolled in a Catholic school for the full year prior to beginning preparation to receive the sacrament. In other words, for a child to receive First Holy Communion and/or First Reconciliation in second grade, they must attend religion classes (PRE or Catholic school) in both first and second grades.

Adults are prepared to receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program. Information about RCIA can be found here.
