First Communion


After baptism, a child belongs to God. But to fully participate in the life of the Church it is important to take the next step: Celebrating the Eucharist. This is celebrated in a special manner when children take their First Communion. It is then that they, for the first and hopefully not the last time, take part in the ‘Meal of the Lord’.

The preparation for First Communion for primary school children (usually group 4) is identical for the entire parish of St. Joris (St. George). It is a celebration for the whole parish when the youngest generation celebrates the sacrament of the Eucharist. It is in church, around the Lord’s alter, that we celebrate our faith; that we are a family in Christ!
