First Communion – Catholic Moments
About First Communion
St. Pius X who ministered as pope from 1903 – 1914 had a special place in his heart for children. As a bishop and pastor he would always carry candy in his pockets for the children he would meet in the street. He regularly included them in the catechism classes he taught. During his papal audiences Pius X made it a practice of gathering children in the audience around him and talk about their interests. He also gave weekly catechism sessions in the courtyard of San Damaso in the Vatican and always included a special place for children. It is St. Pius X who mandated that every parish establish a Confraternity for Christian Doctrine so that children would not be raised in religious ignorance. Read More.
The First Communion program will be available to parishes in 2016.
