This morning, sixty-one children took part in their First Holy Communion. The celebration of First Communion is an exciting event in the life of a parish, and the Sacred Heart community welcomes your child as he/she joins us in receiving our Lord Jesus Christ in the sacrament of the Eucharist.

First Holy Communion is the common name for a person’s first reception of the sacrament of the Eucharist. Catholics recognize the importance of this event as the Eucharist is the central focus of the sacramental life of the Catholic Church.
