First Holy Communion

“The Eucharist is the sacramental action of giving thanks and praise to the Father.” “The ultimate act of faith for a Catholic is to receive the bread and wine at Mass and know that it is truly the Body and Blood of Christ.”   ~ J. Springer 2010 p50

It is the practice of the Archdiocese of Sydney that children will receive their First Holy Communion in Year 3. It is to follow the sacrament of Reconciliation. The separation of the two sacraments enables an adequate catechesis on each of the sacraments.
