First Communion

First Communion has traditionally been celebrated during the second grade; however, in accordance with the Archdiocese of Denver’s Saints Among Us program, Most Precious Blood has transitioned to the Restored Order of the Sacraments of Initiation. This means that children celebrate their First Reconciliation typically in the second grade.

In third grade the Rite of Confirmation precedes the celebration of First Communion within the same ceremony. During the 2017-2018 school year, MPB’s inaugural group of 3rd graders celebrated the Restored Order of the Sacraments of Initiation. Therefore, third graders will continue to prepare for and receive the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Communion during the Easter Season in 2019.
