First Communion Preparation: Students in the 2nd grade or older are invited to prepare for First Communion starting with a Parent Meeting in January. A student must be both registered and participating (i.e. regular attendance) in religion classes for one full year prior to receiving the sacrament (either NUACS or faith formation/religious education). First Reconciliation must be received prior to First Eucharist.
Each Parish in our Holy Cross AFC celebrates First Communion in the weeks following Easter.
