Growing in the Sacraments - Holy Communion

On the night He was betrayed, Jesus instituted the sacrament of Holy Communion as a means of His grace – a vehicle by which His gifts of forgiveness, life, and salvation are distributed to His people. We would like to offer your child the opportunity to learn about this sacrament and receive Holy Communion prior to the day of Confirmation (May of the 8th grade year).

Although, in recent generations, Holy Communion has been reserved until Confirmation Sunday, it is not necessary to link First Communion and Confirmation so closely together. It is true that one needs some instruction in the articles of the faith before receiving Holy Communion for the first time, but it is also true that it is not necessary to withhold this means of God’s grace from a youth who has received instruction and comprehends what God is doing through this meal.
