First Communion

Receiving one’s “Solemn First Communion” is a highlight of a child’s early faith life since from a very early age they have desired to receive Holy Communion. The Eucharist is the central act of worship in the liturgical life of the Catholic Church. The celebration of the Mass is the best expression of the church’s worship of God. Eucharist means “thanksgiving”. It is the greatest means Christians have of thanking God the Father for the gift of his Son, Jesus Christ. In receiving Holy Communion, we receive the real presence of Jesus and so enter into an “intimate communion with God”.

Our Grade Two children are preparing for their Solemn First Communion in the Catholic schools of the parish.

Children attending private or public schools are prepared through a Correspondence Program available from the Diocese of Hamilton. To follow the steps on how to register at the diocese please click here. For any assistance you require please contact Lynette Brown at lbrown@hamiltondiocese.com or call 905-844-3303 ext 37.

In addition a parish preparation for receiving Holy Communion is offered for all candidates together with their parents.
