The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life." Through the Sacrament of the Eucharist, our church community is able to more closely Encounter Christ together and be spiritually fed and strengthened to Live as Disciples in our world.
Preparing for First Eucharist is an important, and joyful chapter in your family’s faith life. In receiving this sacrament, your child will be able to participate fully in the worship life at Prince of Peace and the entire Catholic Church. Sacramental preparation and reception of sacraments is ongoing. Please, consider these questions to help decide if your child is ready….
- Does our family uphold the importance of going to Mass each Sunday (or Saturday)?
- Has my child been baptized and is at least in the 2nd grade?
- Has our family, including the child to begin sacramental preparation, experienced Alpha? (click here for details)
- Has our family, including the child to begin sacramental preparation, experienced and is currently participating in Equip Families? (click here for details).
After reflecting on these questions, if you feel your child is ready, please register your child to begin this journey.
After registration, you will be able to schedule a family meeting, where one of our discernment companions will journey personally with you and your child. Our team is committed to help answer any questions you might have along the way.
