As Catholics we believe that the bread and wine brought forward at Mass truly become the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ through the consecration which takes place at the altar. Catholics wishing to make their First Communion should be prepared in understanding what takes place at the consecration of the Eucharist.
School aged children will receive instruction through our Elementary School or Parish School of Religion classes during the Second Grade school year. For others wishing to receive instruction about First Communion, contact Fr. Peter Fonseca at 314.846.8207 x 205.
