First Communion

First Reconciliation and First Communion are open to students in Grade 2 and above and is conducted in both English and Spanish. The expectation is that a child entering this program has been baptized and has already participated in at least one year of Faith Formation.

 

If your child has not yet been baptized, please contact our Director of Faith Formation Paula Gomez Victorica at gomezvic@bc.edu or 617-552-6106 prior to registering them for First Communion.

While children typically prepare over the course of 2nd grade and receive these sacraments in the spring, we understand that this may vary depending on the child’s individual needs and the family’s situation. Please contact us about the timing of these sacraments for your child if you have any questions.

Families may register their child for these sacraments in the fall when they register for Faith Formation. Families who have their children enrolled in Catholic schools need only register for “Catholic School Students - First Communion Prep” in 2nd grade.

We do expect that families be active participants in our Sunday liturgies and classroom instruction throughout the year. Consistent class attendance is required in order for a child to be on track to receive the sacraments. If there are circumstances that might impact your child’s attendance, please let us know upon registering so that we can make necessary arrangements. Additional preparation for these two sacraments includes a parent/child catechesis retreat prior to the reception of the sacraments.

 

First Reconciliation generally occurs during Lent. First Eucharist occurs on the first two Saturdays in May in English and on a Sunday during May in Spanish. 

Primera Comunión

Para ser elegible para recibir la Primera Confesión y la Primera Comunión, los niño/as deben haber recibido por lo menos un año de preparación religiosa.
 

Es necesario proveer una copia del Certificado de Bautismo de cada niño o niña que desee recibir la Primera Comunión. El Certificado debe entregarse a la Oficina de Formación en la
Fe antes del 15 de Noviembre. Los niños y niñas que fueron bautizados en San Ignacio NO necesitan proveer este documento.

 

Si su niña o niño todavía no ha sido bautizado, por favor,
contacte faithformation.ignatius@bc.edu, 617-552-6102, o Paula Gomez Victorica (gomezvic@bc.edu). Los niño/as no bautizados no pueden recibir la Primera Comunión.

 

Los prepararemos para recibir el Bautismo si es necesario. 4 faltas son justificadas, si son más, queda al criterio de la dirección del programa si el niño/a será aceptado para hacer su Primera Comunión.
