First Holy Communion

“This is my body, which will be given for you;
do this in memory of me.”

All the sacraments are sacred links uniting the faithful with one another and binding them to Jesus.  The name “communion” can be applied to all of them, for they unite us to God.  This name is best suited to the Eucharist than to any other, because it is primarily the Eucharist that brings this communion about.

In the Sacrament of Holy Communion, Christians receive and eat the real body and blood of Christ Jesus, and they enter into unity with Christ and the Church.

Please download the First Communion Day Directives 2022 for information on how the sacrament will be administered.  Note that all Covid-19 social distancing guidelines continue to be strictly followed at every Mass celebration.

We look forward to celebrating this sacrament with St. Mary’s First Communicants of 2021.
