1st Eucharist (Communion)


Once a child has received both the Sacraments of Baptism and Penance (Reconciliation) they are eligible to receive the Sacrament of First Holy Communion (Eucharist). Generally, students who are in Year 3 or above, are invited to participate in this Sacrament. At St Augustine’s and St Joseph’s Parishes, this sacrament is offered during Term 4 of the school year (with registration completed during the previous term).


  • Candidates are in Year 3 or above at school.
  • Attendance of Mass at St Augustine’s or St Joseph’s on a regular basis.
  • Candidates have been baptised and a copy of Baptism Certificate provided with enrolment form if not baptised at St Augustine/ St Joseph Parish.
  • Attendance at the Information Night and Preparation Sessions by the Candidate and at least one parent/carer is mandatory. Attendance by both parents encouraged.
