What is your first holy communion?

A child's first communion is the second of seven sacraments. It is a holy and cherished event in a child's life. A religious ceremony where they receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist for the first time. The first communion is also called the First Eucharist. This event occurs when a child reaches the age of seven or eight. At this age, they must complete all first communion requirements set forth by his or her church for first communion.


Requirements for First Communion

To receive the first communion, a child must be at least seven years of age. Or at an age (seven or greater), they can understand communion's meaning. A child must also have been baptized and received the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is 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 can receive the body and blood of Jesus Christ. Children typically wear all white to their first communion. Family and friends typically give meaningful, personalized religious gifts before and after a child's first communion.

Godparents and Sponsors for the First Communion

A Godparent or sponsor is not required when a child receives their first communion. However, a properly chosen Godparent is a tradition followed by most. A Godparent stands by their Godchild's side when their Godchild receives their first communion. Godparents are typically chosen when a child is christened or baptized. A sponsor (sometimes a Godparent) is selected when a child prepares for confirmation. A parent or 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 and live a faithful life. In addition, a Godparent should 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.
