The Eucharist is the “Source and Summit” of our faith! Christ is truly and fully present to us in the Sacrament of Holy Communion.
Faith formation helps prepare young people for this sacrament which is typically celebrated in the 2nd grade.
The attire should not distract from the focus of receiving the Sacrament. Please use the following guidelines when choosing your child’s attire.
Shirt: White only, full button dress shirt, long or short sleeves. No polo style shirts please.
Pants: Khaki, navy or black dress pants with appropriate belt. No Shorts.
Tie: Required and suitable for the occasion. Solid, stripe or other subtle print please.
Shoes: Dark colored dress shoes with dark socks. No athletic shoes or boots.
Dress jackets are welcome but optional. White suits are optional.
Dresses: White, below the knee in length. Be cautious of full length please (the girls must be able to sit, stand and kneel without interference from their clothing). We encourage the shoulders to be covered, but sleeveless is ok. No spaghetti straps. No low cut or short mini dresses.
Shoes and socks: White, low-heeled dress shoes. No high heels. Open toe shoes are fine. No flip flops or sneakers. White ankle socks or tights are ok.
Veil: Shoulder length sheer white with simple headpiece is optional. Avoid large tiaras or bridal headpieces.
Gloves: White gloves are optional, but must be removed before entering the Communion line.
These requirements are not intended to offend, but are necessary to prevent excesses and insure all are appropriate for this special occasion. Do not give your child items to carry during Mass. They must be able to walk with their hands reverently folded prepared for prayer. If you have any questions about the attire guidelines, please email [email protected]
