The Eucharist is celebrated at all of the Masses. Rarely, a friar may be unavailable for Mass; however, a Communion Service will still be offered. These are indicated on the Calendar of Events.
First Eucharist and First Reconciliation
For those Baptized as Infants
First Eucharist and First Reconciliation preparation is offered to Second Grade students. To ensure that the child has the necessary background for this preparation, the child is required to have participated regularly in a religious education program during the previous year. Special arrangements are made for older children who need to prepare for the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Reconciliation. Please contact Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org .
For those not Baptized as infants
Preparation for receiving the sacrament is different for different aged individuals.
- For children for children age 7 through 8th grade, contact Elizabeth Davis, Director of Religious Education at email@example.com.
- For youth in grades 9 through 12, contact Augusta McMonigal, Youth Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Adults should contact Rob Murray, Adult Faith Formation Pastoral Associate at email@example.com.
Eucharist for the Homebound
If you are homebound, we can arrange to have the Eucharist brought to you by specially trained Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. Please contact Rob Murray, Adult Faith Pastoral Associate at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Eucharist for those in the Hospital
While in the hospital, you must tell the Hospital Chaplain’s office if you would like to be on the Communion list to receive the Eucharist. Our Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion will receive a copy of this list when they visit the hospitals.
