First Holy Communion

“For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.” ~1 Corinthians 11:26

The First Holy Communion is the colloquial name for a person’s first celebration of the sacrament of the Eucharist. This event is very important for any Catholic, as the Eucharist is the central focus of the Catholic Church. Children in year 3, aged 7-8 years old, can receive this sacrament. According to the Code of Canon Law, the First Holy Communion is to be preceded by the sacraments of baptism and reconciliation.

A dedicated team of volunteers from the parish adequately prepare the children to receive the sacraments of reconciliation and Eucharist in cooperation with the family.

Parents who wish to have their children receive their First Holy Communion at St Charbel’s Parish, can contact the Parish Office on 9740 0998.
