First Eucharist

In the Diocese of Phoenix, First Eucharist AND Confirmation are received in the 3rd grade. You must have had at least one year of Catholic Education instruction prior to entering the 3rd grade in order to be eligible for Sacramental Preparation of First Eucharist and Confirmation.

If your child is in a grade above 3rd grade and needs to prepare for either one of these sacraments, please contact the Catholic Education Office. Children in who have not been baptized or older children who have been baptized but have not received their sacraments, will be enrolled in our Christian Initiation for Children (CIC) class which meets on Sundays.

A copy of the child’s baptismal certificate is required at registration. For more information on First Eucharist and Confirmation preparation and requirements, please see the Confirmation section.
