First Eucharist

Sacramental Preparation

Stop! Parents Please Read

If your child did not attend our 2023-2024 program, do not complete the registration form or download the documents on this page. Instead please register your child through our Catechetical Formation program.

If your child did not attend our 2023-2024 program, the registration for the First Eucharist / First Holy Communion program for the catechetical year 2024-2025 is now OPEN.

Sacramental Preparation

The Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life.” “The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch.” (CCC #1324)

Our Sacramental Preparation Program prepares second graders and older for their First Reconciliation and First Eucharist.

Children must have been enrolled either in a Catholic school or in our ongoing Catechetical Program with consistent attendance last year, in order to participate in our Sacramental Preparation Process.

It is expected that parents enroll their children in the First Grade program prior to their participation in Second grade Sacramental Preparation.

Due to the limited space in each classroom, registration will be treated as first come, first in. Registration is not complete until we have received a copy of your baptism certificate and tuition has been paid.

For more information, please contact Matthew Shafer at (408) 879-1120 ext. 14, or by email at mshafer@sfcabrini.org.
