Children celebrate the Sacrament of First Eucharist in the second grade year. Preparation for this sacrament begins 
Holy Spirit Parish First Eucharist Celebrationin the first grade year. Waiting until the second grade to register will only put your child behind his/her age peer group. Therefore, if a child will not be attending Holy Spirit School, the parents should contact the Religious Education Office in August of the child's first grade year to register him/her in the Wednesday Night Program. It is expected that all children will have a continuous religious education experience to prepare them for their lives as Catholic Christians.

There is a mandatory parent class on January 27, 2016 at 6:45 pm in the Chapel.

Handbook and Registration Form
The First Eucharist Handbook is available for you to download. Included in this handbook is a Registration for First Eucharist form.  This needs to be handed in no later than February 11, 2015.  

Baptismal Certificate
If your child was not baptized at Holy Spirit Church, a baptismal certificate needs to accompany the registration form. Originals will be returned. If you do not have a copy of your child's baptismal certificate, please contact the church of baptism for a copy. It may be sent directly to us via mail or fax.
