First Communion Gifts
What is a First Communion?
A child's first communion, the second of seven sacraments, is a hold and cherished event in a child's life whereby they recieve the Sacrament
of the Eucharist for the first time. The first communion also called First Eucharist typically takes place when a child reaches the age of
seven or eight - and when a child completes all first communion requirements set forth by his or her church for first communion.

Requirements for First Communion
To recieve the first communion a child must be at least seven years of age - or at an age (seven or greater) where they are able to understand
the meaning of communion. A child must also have been baptized
- and must have recieved the Sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as
First Penance. This is where a child confesses his or her sins for the first time. Once a child has a clear conscience they are able to receive
the body and blood of Jesus Christ. Children typically wear all white to their first communion. Family and friends typically give religious gifts
with meaning at celebrations given before and after a child's first communion.

Godparents and Sponsors
A godparent or sponsor is not required when a child receives their first communion - however a properly chosen godparent should be by their
godchild's side when their godchild recieves their first communion. Godparents are carefully chosen when a child is christened (i.e., baptized)
and a sponsor (sometimes a godparent) is selected when a child prepares for confirmation. A parent of guardian should select a godparent that is
able to join their child on their journey of faith. A godparent should be of the same faith, live a faithful life, and be able to teach and mentor
their godchild throughout life. A godparent is a role model, a mentor, and a lifelong partner in faith - A person that should be chosen with care.
