EUCHARIST (Holy Communion)
Sacramental Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist may start in the 2nd grade. All 2nd year students registered in Immaculate Heart Of Mary’s Faith Formation are considered candidates for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. Preparation includes class attendance, weekly mass participation and family engagement in community parish events.
(Older children through the age of 14 are prepared through the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) program for Children. Adults participate in the RCIA program).
Prior to registering for Sacramental Preparation, children must be registered in Faith Formation and have attended faith formation classes for at least one year. Sacramental Preparation sessions are concurrent with family faith formation sessions.
