The Eucharist is one of the three Sacraments of Christian Initiation. ‘It is the ‘source and summit’ (CCC#1324) of Christian life where we become one in Christ and also share in the promises he made to us on the Cross. Jesus is really and truly present in the Eucharist. It means that when we receive the Eucharist we are really receiving Jesus and all the graces he won for us in his passion, death, and resurrection. All these graces help us in our everyday lives by increasing our love for God and for each other.
Our First Eucharist program here at St. John 23rd endeavours to teach children the significance of Holy Communion by learning about Jesus through his life and ultimate sacrifice for us.
If you would like your child to receive the First Eucharist sacrament, he/she must be in Year 4 and at least 8 years of age. He/She must have already received the sacrament of First Reconciliation.
Our program is annual and commences with enrolments during March/April each year. Enrolments have now closed for 2017.
To check your child’s confirmed First Eucharist ceremony date, please call Jill on 9852-0583.
