First Holy Communion and Reconciliation

“First Communion,” Pope Francis said, “is, above all, a celebration. We celebrate Jesus, who wants to remain always by our side.”

As Catholics, we know that the Holy Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith: it is the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
