First Eucharist - Begins Sunday, September 22nd

At the heart of who we are as Catholics is the Eucharist. Signs, symbols, tradition, and anticipation all blend to create a true desire within our children to celebrate the mystery of transubstantiation.

At St. Joseph's, students begin preparing for First Eucharist in 2nd grade or above. Students, along with their parents, attend preparation sessions with Catechists. Discipleship service, a retreat, and participation in the Mass and special Liturgies are also part of the preparation process. The Sacrament is celebrated during the Easter season.

The Sacrament of First Eucharist program meets on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m., in the Parish Hall, starting Sunday, September 22nd.
