First Communion generally happens in the second grade.
All CCD students need to complete Religious Education for both 1st and 2nd grade in order to receive their First Communion at the end of 2nd grade.
All First and Second Year Communion Students (generally 1st and 2nd graders),
must be registered members of St. Monica Parish in order to….
1. attend St. Monica 1st and 2nd grade CCD classes.
2. to receive their First Penance at St. Monica Parish.
3. to receive their First Communion at St. Monica Parish.
If your student attends St. Monica School, they will be prepared for both First Penance and First Communion during their 1st and 2nd grade school years. If you are registered at another parish, be sure to contact them right away for details on sacrament requirements and dates.
