First Holy Communion is the sacrament where God, through the actions of the priest at Mass, changes the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ: "At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet 'in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.'" (CCC, 1323)
Two years of sacramental preparation are required for a student to receive First Reconciliation and First Communion.
