Eucharist

The Eucharist is the sacrament by which Catholics receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. For Catholics, this is the most treasured gift given to the Church by the Lord at the Last Supper. In receiving the Eucharist, we are nourished by the Lord. The bread and wine used in the Mass are transformed in all but appearance into the Body and Blood of Christ.

For information on the celebration of the Eucharist at St. Anne Parish please refer to the Mass schedule on the home page or click here for the Mass schedule page.

If you wish Communion to be brought to someone at home, please contact the parish office.

First Holy Communion

As children reach the age of reason, generally around age seven, the Church extends to them an invitation to celebrate the sacrament of Eucharist. The initiation into the Christian community that took place at baptism is further extended by inviting children to enter fully into the heart of Christian faith through participation in the Eucharist.

First Holy Communion is scheduled to take place each spring after Easter.

Preparation for First Penance and reception of First Communion is a two year program that generally encompasses grade 1 & 2. Parents must provide a letter that their child has attended a First Year Program either in another Parish or Parochial School. Otherwise the child will not be eligible for the second year program and must start with the first year program.

Parochial School Students
Parochial school students entering Grade 2
anticipating the reception of First Penance and First Eucharist for the coming school year must register in the Parish Office and attend Parent Meetings and retreats and classes in preparation for the reception of the Sacraments at St. Anne Parish.
