First Communion

First Communion Classes and Dates 2013-2014

First Communion is a two year process, as required by the Archdiocese of Atlanta. Your child would need to have been in First Grade or Level 1 religious education classes for the 2012-2013 school year in order to meet the requirements to make their First Communion in 2014. If your child attended Religion classes at a different parish please bring a letter from that Church verifying attendance.

You will need to turn in your child’s Baptismal Certificate no later than September 8, 2013 with the First Communion Sacramental Form. If your child was baptized at St. Theresa’s you will still need to provide us with a copy of their baptismal certificate. We have a $25.00 registration fee to offset the cost of materials and retreats.

All children receiving their First Communion must attend weekly Sunday Mass.

Classes: 8:30 AM or 12:15 PM for 2nd through 6th Grade and 6:00PM for 7th through 12th Grade.
