First Communion preparation and celebration is open
to registered St. Joan of Arc parish families beginning when your child is in second grade. Parents and
children complete the home
study program together. Letters regarding First Communion information
are mailed to households with children ages 7-12 in either January or February.
Although First Communicants are not required to be registered in faith formation classes, they must be registered members of St. Joan of Arc. Everyone receiving First Communion must be Baptized. If your child has NOT been Baptized, please notify Marie Bissonnette immediately as arrangements must be made for baptism before receiving First Communion.
