First Communion-Eucharist

First Communion / Eucharist

How can my child make his or her first communion?
In collaboration with parents, we provide a two year program of preparation for children to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion beginning in the first grade and concluding in second grade.  Please see the Religious Education section of this website and contact Sr. Nancy Citro, SNDdeN for further information at ncitro@stmarystcatherine.org or 617-242-4664.

What if my child is older than the second grade?
In collaboration with parents, we will work to prepare the older children for First Communion.

Can I request communion for a loved one who is home bound?
We welcome the opportunity to provide pastoral visits and communion for homebound parishioners. Please contact Sr. Nancy Citro, SND at ncitro@stmarystcatherine.org or call her at 617-242-4664 to arrange a visit with a priest. Our priests and deacons and communion ministers all make visits to make arrangements.

Can I bring Communion to a relative or friend who is in the hospital or home bound?
To give the Eucharist to another, a Catholic must be trained and authorized. We prepare confirmed Catholics to become Communion Ministers with much care. To be eligible for this ministry a Catholic must live a life of faith and charity consistent with the gift of the Eucharist.
