First Eucharist

General Information:  Preparation for the Sacrament of First Communion begins in September of the school year.  Students in Grade 2 prepare as part of their religion academic program in the Catholic schools or in the “Catechetical” parish program (for those students in non Catholic schools). For information on the Catehetical program offered by our parish, please refer to the “Catechetics” tab on our website.  Celebration of the Sacrament of First Communion takes place over 3 weekends following Easter Sunday of each calendar year.


CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR Grade 2 students from St. Gregory the Great, Holy Family, St. Andrew and St. Marguerite d’Youville Catholic Schools and to our Parish Catechetical Students who recently received the Sacrament of 1st Communion.  We ask God to bless them on their continued journey of faith.  We also thank our Very Rev. Father John Van Hees for a beautiful celebration!  Thank you to Marisa Patskou, Parish Catechetical Co-ordinator plus all of our Grade 2 teachers, parents and all those who helped prepare our children and make the celebration a true blessing!!
