From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:
The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life." "The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it."
Children who have been preparing for First Communion this year will receive the Blessed Sacrament in April. There are three Mass times available to choose from:
For those preparing to receive First Communion, preparing for First Reconciliation is the first step in the formation process. In addition, the Diocese of Madison expects all participants to have participated in at least one year of religious education (either at a parochial school or in a parish program, such as FLAME) prior to the year of receiving these two sacraments. This means that a child in second grade will have attended religious education classes in both first and second grade before receiving First Reconciliation in the fall and First Communion in the spring of their second year.
