Before receiving First Eucharist, the children are prepared to receive First Reconciliation (confession). This preparation is completed during the summer and early Fall and the Sacrament is received at the end of November or very early December of second grade.
Eucharist: following Church Law, First Eucharist is received after the child reaches 7 years old and is in the second grade. Here at St. Pius X the family must be registered parishioners and the child must attend the 2-year program according to Diocesan guidelines to receive the Sacrament. The children receive First Communion during the Easter Season of second grade.
Our parents are expected to attend parent meetings since they are involved in preparing the children for these sacraments.
