First Holy Communion
"Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life; he who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst." -- John 6:35
The Sacrament of First Holy Communion is for children in grades 2 and up.
The sacrificial memorial of Christ and of his Body, the Church. St. Augustine admirably summed up this doctrine that moves us to an ever more complete participation in our Redeemer’s sacrifice which we celebrate in the Eucharist.
This wholly redeemed city, the assembly and society of the saints, is offered to God as a universal sacrifice by the high priest who in the form of a slave went so far as to offer himself for us in his Passion, to make us the Body of so great a head. Such is the sacrifice of Christians: “we who are many are one Body in Christ” The Church continues to reproduce this sacrifice in the sacrament of the altar so well-known to believers wherein it is evident to them that in what she offers she herself is offered. St. Augustine
