First Eucharist is generally celebrated in the spring of second grade. According to Canon Law (church law), children must be at least seven years of age before receiving the Eucharist for the first time. Children must be in
a Religious Education Program or a Catholic school for 2 years before receiving the sacrament. Children who have not received the sacrament for whatever reason can be prepared at any time after second grade.
