We warmly welcome children who wish to prepare to receive the Eucharist for the first time. Most children do this in the spring of their 2nd grade year. Our diocese requires two years of preparation for this event. These can be completed in our regular Faith Formation Program, held on Sunday mornings or through enrollment at a Catholic Elementary School such as Sacred Heart School. In addition, immediately prior to reception of the sacrament, the child and parent attend sessions together. Please contact Lisa, our Faith Formation Director, (727-541-4447 or firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions or for additional information.
