First Holy Communion (Eucharist)

Any child not attending a Catholic school is able to celebrate their First Holy Communion as a Catechist. The Candidate must be in at least Grade 4 level.

St Kevin’s Catechist program is an at home commitment between family and child which involves working through a Catechist booklet (provided). We allow a 10 week period for a comfortable time frame for this to be achieved and these workbooks will be used to finalise sacramental preparation.

Attending mass on a regular basis, is encouraged as this will prepare your child to feel comfortable, at ease and enjoy their First Eucharist.
We look forward to celebrating this important Sacrament with your child/ren.
In the meantime, and to help with preparation, we encourage all families to visit our ‘Children’s and Family Page‘ where you will find weekly worksheets and links to a family style liturgy.
If you would like your child to receive the sacrament of Holy Communion, please contact the Parish Office on 9850 5983 or email us on templestowe@cam.org.au
Blessings from all of us at St Kevin’s Parish.
Please note: Registration for all enrolled students at our Parish Schools will be done through their school.
