The first time your child receives Eucharist is a time of great joy for your family and for us here at St. Francis Xavier Parish.
Two years of preparation is required to receive the sacrament of Eucharist. This sacrament normally is received in the 2nd grade, but we will work with families of older children that come through our program also.
Families are required to attend 3 Parent/Child Prep-Liturgies in preparation for the Sacrament of Eucharist. At the 3rd Prep-Liturgy students will receive their 1st Reconciliation.
