While they were eating, Jesus took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and giving it to his disciples said, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed on behalf of many for the forgiveness of sins.
- Mt. 26:26-28
The Sacrament of the First Holy Eucharist for our students in our Parish Religious Education (PRE) program, is celebrated in May of their 3rd grade year.
For those students who are past the age of 7 and are past the 3rd grade, a special program is developed for them, and they will receive their Sacrament either at the Easter Vigil Mass, or alongside that year's 3rd grade class in May.
To have your child enrolled in the PRE Program, or to request further information, please contact the Parish office at (901) 465-8685
