First Communion is usually celebrated during Sunday Mass in the Spring of 2nd grade year. The steps for any child receiving First Communion at Ascension are as follows:

~If you are seeking preparation for the Sacrament of First Communion, parent(s) should contact Tasha Gordon at the parish office for details and arrangements at 451-3860, EXT. 15 or e-mail at:

~Proof of baptism is required for those we do not have sacramental records.

~For all others, the beginning of the sacramental process for First Communion begins in January with an information meeting for parents, where details and dates will be given out.

~There is usually a “Workshop” day in March and First Communion practice the week prior to the reception of the sacrament. The celebration of the sacrament is in April.
