First Holy Communion 2017

April 2017
This year, 80 boys and girls from St. Francis Borgia received their First Holy Communion (First Eucharist). As in past years, the First Communions were celebrated at multiple Masses, with some children at Masses on April 22-23, and some on the weekend of April 29-30. Because First Eucharist is a sacrament of initiation, it is celebrated during the Easter season.

First Eucharist Afternoon of Reflection

March 5, 2016
As part of First Eucharist preparation, SFB First Communicants and their parents attend a First Eucharist Afternoon of Reflection during Lent. This is a time to pull together all of the information learned about First Communion. Activities include puzzles and games, video clips, baking bread and touring the church. The afternoon ends with the children taking the bread they made and “breaking it” with their parent(s) or special adult. Click to view gallery.
