First Eucharist

The child must be registered and attend Religious Education Classes in order that he or she has “sufficient knowledge and be accurately prepared, so that according to their capacity they understand what the mystery of Christ means, and are able to receive the Body of the Lord with faith and devotion (Canon 913-914). The child must make his or her First Reconciliation before being admitted to Holy Communion (Canon 914). First Communion usually occurs in the 2nd grade, and in the Diocese of Monterey it is a 2 year process so children need to start in 1st grade. Contact: Stacy Huck at ext. 18 or by email at
