First Communion

The Blessed Eucharist is the perfect sacrament of the Lord’s Passion, since it contains Christ Himself and his Passion.

– St. Thomas Aquinas

Communion

Church law requires that before a Sacrament is administered, the priest must have proof of Baptism. Mary Our Queen requires proper proof before a child is able to celebrate the sacraments

There should be at least three months separation between the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Eucharist.

Policy

It is the policy of Mary Our Queen that students preparing for celebrations of sacraments must be in a Catholic school or Religious Education program for an appropriate time before reception of the sacraments. Students attending for the first time are required to submit a letter from their previous parish to confirm their attendance. Attendance at a Catholic school fulfills this requirement; however, regarding the sacrament of Confirmation, all students who wish to be confirmed must attend immediate preparation classes and fulfill any requirements that are a part of that preparation.

Class

Classes for young people who have not been baptized (or who have been baptized but have not received some of the sacraments) are available.

Students who are new to the Religious Education program and who have not attended Religious Education classes during the previous year must meet with the Director of Religious Education and may be required to participate in a class which assists them in becoming current with their present grade level.
