First Communion

Children prepare for the Sacrament of the Eucharist during the second (2nd) grade year.  Children who attend Bishop Heelan Catholic Schools (BHCS) receive catechesis during the school day.  Children who do not attend Bishop Heelan Catholic Schools should enroll in the Religious Education Program (REP) for catechesis.  Please check the Religious Education page for more information on our program.  All children, whether attending BHCS or Religious Education, receive the sacrament in the Church, and therefore formal communication with regard to the celebration of the sacrament comes from the parish.  Children receive the sacrament in the parish at which the family is registered.

The following dates apply to all children (home-schooled, BHCS or REP) whose families are registered members of Sacred Heart Church.
