The Eucharist, or Communion, is both a sacrifice and a meal. We believe in the real presence of Jesus, who died for our sins. As we receive Christ’s Body and Blood, we also are nourished spiritually and brought closer to God. First Eucharist classes are offered to children of all ages, 1st grade through High School. Two years of classes are required. Classes begin in September, registration is ongoing. Classes take place at both Our Lady of Presentation and Our Lady of Mercy on Saturday mornings.
