Jesus Christ is our sustenance on our journey through life


The First Communion is the next stage on this journey, after Baptism, and marks the first time that someone receives the Eucharist.

In their second year of primary school, children prepare for their participation in this Eucharist, together with the school, the parish community and their families.

The First Communion is prepared during the monthly meetings on Sunday morning.
