Sacrament of the Eucharist
The Sacrament of Holy Eucharist is received in the child’s home parish. It is the responsibility of the parent to contact their parish in early September to enroll the child in the parish sacramental program.
Formal instruction for the Eucharist is part of the second grade curriculum. To further celebrate the sacrament, students also participate in 2 retreat days prior to First Communion.
In late May, students and their families celebrate the student’s First Communion with a Sunday Liturgy in the convent Chapel. All are welcome. A reception follows in the NDEC auditorium.
