Holy Communion

“There is nothing so great as the Eucharist. If God had something more precious He would have given it to us.”  -St John Vianney

First Holy Communion Classes Spring of 2024 

 Candidates:

First Holy Communion and Confirmation: Children who are in the 3rd grade level of religion class (homeschooling or standard school) may receive first Holy Communion and Confirmation. Due to the “restored order” in the Archdiocese of Denver, both of these sacraments are received at the same time.

Requirements:

BAPTISMAL CERTIFICATE: If your child is wishing to receive their sacraments, a newly dated Baptismal certificate must be provided from the parish of Baptism. These must be newly dated. Please have them emailed to sacraments@olmcfssp.org. If your child was Baptized at OLMC, we already have a record of your child’s Baptism and therefore no request is needed.

CONFESSION CLASS: If your child is eligible to receive FHC and/or Conf. in 2024, and they have not taken Confession classes at OLMC, they must pass the Confession exam at OLMC before receiving their sacraments. They are welcome to attend classes before taking the exam.

Information:

Date and Time: Sundays at 2:15pm in the St. Albert room.                                                                                                                                     

Classes: Beginning January 28, 2024 through March 17, 2024

Recordings: All classes will be recorded and available via YouTube.

Testing: All candidates will be required to take a test based on the information in the study guides below. Those wishing to receive first Confession will take a different test than those wishing to receive first Holy Communion/Confirmation. If your child is ready to receive their first Holy Communion/Confirmation but did NOT receive their first Confession at OLMC, they MUST also take the first Confession test in addition to the first Holy Communion/Confirmation test.

Homeschooling Option: Homeschooling instead of coming to the classes is an option as long as the child is able to pass the required test based on the study guides below.
