ENCOUNTER Communion Prep

ENCOUNTER provides families and children with sacramental preparation experiences for 1st Communion that aims to prepare children and their families for the momentous encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist.

Incorporating our 3 Goals, Knowing [being informed through hands-on learning], Growing [being formed through faith experiences], and Living [being transformed through faith in action], ENCOUNTER offers families the opportunities to learn, understand, and participate in the sacrament with open and ready hearts.

Important to Note

  • 1st Communion programming is currently set to begin in September 2023.     

  • Per Canon Law and Archdiocesan rules, the celebration of all Sacraments, including Reconciliation and Communion, must be done in-person and cannot be received virtually. 

  •  All candidates for First Communion must be baptized, or scheduled to be baptized before they can receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion in the Spring.
