First Communion

At St. Jude, second grade is the usual year for preparation for First Communion. To make this year a true celebration of growth in God's family, in addition to classroom preparation, the program includes participation in Embracing Christ and His Parish: Eucharist.


To receive the Sacrament of Eucharist, regular attendance in a formal religious education program, during first and second grade, such as the Sunday Morning Religious education classes, St. Jude School or verified homeschooling program, is required for children to participate in Embracing Christ and His Parish.

Children typically register through the school or Sunday Religious Education program.  If you have home school student or special need please contact Tammy Stewart at
