HOLY COMMUNION

"The holy Eucharist completes Christian initiation. Those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by Baptism and configured more deeply to Christ by Confirmation participate with the whole community in the Lord's own sacrifice by means of the Eucharist." CCC. 1322

 Requirements

As Catholics, we believe that the Eucharist is the true presence of Jesus, the source and summit of the Christian life.  Therefore, we take great care in preparing our children for their first Eucharist. 

 

 Our parish practice is to have children receive first Holy Communion in 2nd grade after they have made their first Confession. 

 

Children must receive formation in St. Jude School or Family Faith Formation.  

If your child is older than 2nd grade or you are an adult seeking to receive First Holy Communion, please contact:

 

Coordinator of Faith Formation, Sarah Reznicek at re@stjudejoliet.net or 815-725-2209  X404.

In a loud voice they were saying: “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!”
