First Eucharist

 First Eucharist Preparation

Eucharist is a gift that is given to the child as they grow in their faith. The Catechesis of the Good Shepard program prepares the child to receive this gift through faith formation groups and retreats. The children that are preparing for First Eucharist should be 7 years old and in 2nd grade. The child needs to have completed a minimum of 1 year of faith formation before their 2nd-grade year.

There is not a separate registration for this group, but you do need to express your interest in the faith formation registration.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation may be received through the Saturday Parish Reconciliation time from 4-4:30 pm, Reconciliation service during Advent or Lent, or by appointment by calling the Parish Office at 770-416-0002.
The children will be prepared to receive this sacrament through their Faith Formation group.
