“At the heart or the Eucharistic celebration are the bread and wine that, by the words of Christ and the invocation of the Holy
Spirit, become Christ’s Body and Blood. Faithful to the Lord’s command the Church continues to do, in His memory, until his glorious return, what he did on the eve of his Passion: “He took bread… .” “He took the cup filled with wine. . . ” The bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ. It is awesome and surpassing our human understanding,.” 
 (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1333)


First Eucharist is usually celebrated in the Second grade after after two years of preparation through the Religious Education Program or through our Catholic grade school.
