First Communion

Eucharist is the sacrament in which the true Body and Blood of Christ, who is truly and substantially present under the appearance of bread and wine, is received in holy Communion.

(About Baptism for Children, 2016 Faith Catholic, pg 12)

Typically, we celebrate our First Communion in second grade. We have a faith formation class for second graders that is tailored to teach about the significance and symbolism of the Holy Eucharist and their First Communion.

To learn more about this program, please see our Faith Formation page.

If you are past second grade and would like to receive the Holy Eucharist, we have a separate program for you. To learn more about this program and next steps, please email or call the parish office at or 812-937-2200.

We look forward to celebrating your First Communion with you!
