First Holy Communion
First Holy Communion preparations begin with religious instructions at home, supplemented by classes in the Parish School of Religion (PSR) program. The usual time to receive First Holy Communion is the spring of Second grade. Parents of the candidates attend several special classes in the Fall and Spring of their child's Second grade PSR year. Students entering our PSR program without having made their First communion are entered into an individualized program, called the Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (RCIC).
Visits to the Homebound
Eucharistic Ministers volunteer to take communion to parishioners, every week, who are homebound due to illness or age. The ministry gives those unable to attend Mass a chance to receive communion and stay in touch with the parish community. Coordinator is Pat Hoffman, 440.327.1978
