Eucharist

At its heart, the Eucharist is a sacrament of communion, bringing us closer to God and to our brother and sisters in the Body of Christ.  If we live the fruits of the Eucharist in our daily lives, we will fill our families and our communities with the life-giving qualities that the Liturgy brings:  hospitality, concern for the poor and vulnerable, self-offering, and thanksgiving.

First Eucharist Sacramental Preparation:

Children Preparation:
Children are normally prepared for their First Reconciliation (Confession) in the second grade; followed by preparation for the sacraments of First Communion (Eucharist) and Confirmation in the third grade.  In the Diocese of Phoenix the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist are celebrated in the same Liturgy.  St. Mary’s Basilica also provides sacramental preparation programs for children older than the third grade.  For more information Visit: Confirmation and 1st Eucharist for Children

Adult Preparation: 
If you haven’t received your First Communion (Eucharist) and/or Confirmation your preparation will be completed through the year-long Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) process as required by the Diocese of Phoenix.
