First Communion

May 8, 2021

“While they were eating, Jesus took a piece of bread, said a prayer of thanks, broke it, and gave it to his disciples. ‘Take and eat it,’ he said; ‘This is my body.’ Then he took a cup, gave thanks to God, and gave it to them, and said, ‘Drink it, all of you, this is my blood, which seals God’s covenant, my blood poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will never again drink this wine until the day I drink the new wine with you in my Father’s kingdom.’”  

Matthew 26:26-28.

Weekend masses: see schedule.

Communion to the Sick: Contact the Pastoral Care Coordinator at the parish office to make arrangements for a Minister of Holy Communion to visit the person.

Reconciliation (Confession/Penance)

Jesus came and stood before them… then he breathed on them and said, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit, if you forgive men’s sins, they are forgiven them, if you hold them bound, they are held bound.”  

John 20:22,23

Saturdays 3:30-4:15 PM or by appointment. Communal parish penance services are celebrated during Advent and Lent.

First Reconciliation (for children age 7 and older) involves attendance in a sacramental preparation program. Contact the DRE for information.
