At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet 'in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.'

— Catechism of the Catholic Church, §1323



The reception of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist usually takes place in the 3rd grade. A candidate for the first Communion must have had religious instruction the previous year, with no more than three absences in the year. A candidate is also required to attend Mass each Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation. Contact the Parish Office to learn more.


Adults who have been Baptized and wish to receive First Holy Communion should contact the Parish Office to learn more. Adults who have never been Baptized should contact the Parish Office to learn about the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) which includes the preparation for and celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist.



The parish holds Sacrament records from both St. Charles Borromeo and Our Lady of Fatima worship sites. Official documentation and letters of good standing must include the parish seal and need to be received in person. Contact the Parish Office to make a request and arrange a pick-up: 215-638-3625.
