Eucharist / Holy Communion

The Eucharist is the very sacrifice of the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus which he instituted to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until his return in glory. Thus he entrusted to his Church this memorial of his death and Resurrection. It is a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a paschal banquet, in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.

At Holy FamilyFirst Holy Communion is celebrated during August/September when children are in Year 3. Appropriate preparation is carried out beforehand. Children who are older but who have still to receive the Sacrament for the first time are welcome and will receive suitable preparation.

We forward to welcoming you to our Sacramental program and assisting you and your child in taking this next step in their faith development.
