First Communion

2nd Grade and Older
Instruction is offered to children in the second grade and up who are ready to learn more about receiving the Holy Eucharist. First Communion class is an education opportunity and not a requirement for receiving the Eucharist. In the Episcopal Church all baptized children are permitted to receive Communion. Parents who would like their very young child to receive communion should ask the Rector for a packet for home use that will be a guide in some basic instruction. If your child already receives Communion we still encourage instruction in the second grade.
Instruction takes place on five Saturday mornings at 8:00 am, beginning in October. Children will receive their first Communion on Harvest Sunday, the Sunday before Thanksgiving.
First Communion class for children with special needs meets Saturday morning from 9 to 9:45; Parent or parishioner volunteers are appreciated.
