First Eucharist

The Faith Formation Office welcomes parents to participate in the sacramental preparation process for First Eucharist. We are pleased to support you as the “domestic church” and look forward to helping as you prepare your child/ren to receive this sacrament.

A child is eligible to prepare for Eucharist after he/she has prepared for Reconciliation.  The typical age for students to begin their preparation is 2nd grade.   A minimum of one full year’s attendance in Faith Formation, either in the Sunday program, family home study program, or one of the local Catholic Schools, 
is required immediately previous to the year in which a student is accepted into a Sacramental Program. See this link for further information.

For further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Director of Religious Education, Amy Spessard at: 301-662-8288 or via email.
