First Holy Communion (Holy Eucharist):
Holy Eucharist is the central element of all liturgies here at Saint Miriam, and an essential part of our unity with our Holy Catholic Church. In order to prepare, we offer our children a period of formation. The program/process focuses on three major areas: Catechesis, Liturgical ritualization, and Community involvement. During the two years, the child is catechized both at home and by participating in faith formation sessions led by a member of the parish community. The parish also affirms and recognizes parents as the primary catechists of their children. To assist parents in this role and foster a deeper appreciation and understanding of the Eucharist and Reconciliation, the parents participate in adult faith formation sessions. Additionally, the child participates in rituals designed to introduce the children to the riches of the Eucharist and the life of the Christian community. Finally, members of the parish faith community support the children through prayer and receive them at a formal setting during a Celebration of the Mass. It is a great time of joy!
