First Communion is celebrated by students in second grade. Parents and children attend several meetings and workshops and complete the home study program together. Letters regarding First Communion information are mailed to households with second grade students registered in our Elementary Religious Education program in either January or February. Although First Communicants are not required to be registered in religious education classes, they must be members of St. Joan of Arc.
Households with second graders not attending SJA religious education classes need to notify the Parish Office of the desire to participate in the sacramental preparation program.
