Students will be able to:

  • Understand the story of the Last Supper
  • Explain why we make our First Communion
  • Write a basic prayer for Communion


First Communion is a very important and holy day for Catholic children because they are receiving, for the first time, the body and blood of Jesus Christ. By continuing to receive Holy Communion for the rest of their lives, Catholics become one with Christ and believe they will share in His eternal life.
