Experience has made me realize in my twenty-five years of serving souls the all-powerful virtue of this Divine Sacrament, to strengthen hearts in good, exempt them from evil, console them, and in a word make them God-like in this world if it be requented with faith, purity, and devotion. ~ St. Francis de Sales
Preparing for First Eucharist (Holy Communion)
Depending on the age of your child, and that your child has been a regular participant in a formal faith formation/religious education program, preparation for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist at OLGC takes place in one of two ways. NOTE: If your child is 7-18 years old and has not regularly participated in a formal faith formation/religious education program, see the information on the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults adapted for Children.
