Eucharist – Child 

Home / Eucharist – Child 

At Our Lady of the Lake, First Communion preparation is a two-year path, beginning as young as 1st grade.  

PRE-COMMUNION YEAR 

Explore Quest and Mend together as a family. These two resources are the basis of a year of engaging at-church sessions for the whole family and at-home family meetings.  

Quest – Quest materials are designed to engage families in the Adventure of a Life of Prayer. It combines learning about prayer with the fun of participating in a family board game.  

Mend – Mend is designed to help families explore the beauty of God’s love and mercy as they help prepare a family member to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time.  

COMMUNION YEAR  

Explore Nourish together as a family. This robust resource is the basis of a year of engaging at-church sessions for the whole family, retreats and at-home family meetings.  

Nourish is designed to help families explore the gift of Jesus in the Eucharist, as they support a family member preparing to receive Communion for the first time. Children receiving Eucharist will understand the gift that it is, coming to the altar well prepared and supported, as they receive Jesus into themselves.
