First Holy Communion

Our younger parishioners celebrate two essential sacraments of the Catholic faith — the sacrament of Reconciliation in the fall and the sacrament of First Holy Communion or Eucharist in the spring. Preparation is generally done during 2nd grade, but a student may prepare to receive these sacraments once they and their family are ready for sacramental preparation after the age of seven (7).

At Ascension, sacramental preparation is accomplished through a partnership involving parents, school religion teachers, and catechists. Children who attend Ascension Catholic School will receive sacramental preparation in the 2nd grade during their religion class. Children who do not attend Ascension Catholic School will meet six (6) Wednesdays during the fall for First Reconciliation preparation and six (6) Wednesdays in the spring for First Holy Communion preparation.

Parents are highly encouraged to attend sessions for parents to learn more about the Sacraments and how parents, as the first teachers of the faith, can support their child(ren) in their faith journey.

Participating in these preparation processes may create some conflicts with athletics and other extracurricular activities. Ascension asks you to be generous in setting your priorities in favor of these sacraments. 

If you are seeking preparation for your child(ren), please fill out the form below. For questions, please contact the Director of Family Formation at 502-451-3860.
