First Holy Communion – Saturday, April 24, 2021: at
9:30 AM for students A-L
12 noon for students M-Z.
Please do not call the office to request a change in Mass time for your child.
Mass is approximately one hour.
Due to COVID, there will be no practices for First Communion. Children will sit with their families in assigned pews. Due to church capacity restrictions, and to allow for social distancing, there will be a limit of 5 guests per child. Tickets will be distributed. We understand that this limit is upsetting to many families – it is disappointing to us, too. However, it cannot be helped. We must comply with the mandates of the Office of the Bishop. The well-being and safety of everyone is the priority. Every effort will be made to provide live streaming of the First Communions so additional family members that are unable to attend can be included. We appreciate your understanding.
Girls: White dress (absolutely no floor length, no hoops, or crinoline please), white veil, white socks (anklets, knee socks or stockings), white dress shoes. No gloves, please.
Boys: Navy blue or white suit, white shirt, white tie, dress shoes.
Flowers: Children are not to wear or carry flowers during the Mass.
Fee: There is a fee of $100 which will be used to offset the cost of flowers, programs, stipends, etc. Please remit the fee to the PREP office in an envelope labeled with your child’s name and teacher’s name no later than March 1, 2021.
