Sacramental Preparation

2nd Grade or First Holy Communion

First Communion classes start:

Sunday Classes - Sept. 16 / Tuesday Classes - Sept. 18 / Wednesday Classes - Sept. 19

Sacramental preparation periods are times of special grace and expectation. When it comes to receiving First Holy Communion, Jesus comes to us in a unique way through the Eucharist. We receive Him into our body and our soul, which is very beautiful, personal, and intimate. We should not take it for granted! But how do we go about preparing our children to receive such a special grace?

Here at St. Monica Catholic Church, we provide our parishioners with the tools and resources needed to help guide your family through the process, so as to make receiving First Holy Communion a special, sacred and holy experience. 

Is your son or daughter ready to receive Jesus through the Eucharist for the first time? Join us for weekly Sacramental Preparation classes, specifically designed for children who will be in 2nd grade this upcoming spring. First Communion will be held Saturday, May 11, at 10 a.m. and Sunday, May 12, 1 p.m. (during the Spanish Mass). Receptions will follow in the Parish Hall.

For questions about enrollment information and a list of class dates and times, contact Carrie HarkeyDirector of Evangelization. We look forward to walking through this journey with you and your family!
