First Informed Communion Class
Contact: Sarah Jo Skinner
First Communion Classes are offered to all baptized children, age five and over, to introduce them to this vital sacrament of the Church. As the Book of Common Prayer states that Baptism is “Full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body, the Church,” the Episcopal Church allows infants and children to receive Communion prior to instruction in First Communion Classes and to be presented for instruction at age five or older. Class is usually offered yearly during Lent. Contact Sarah Jo Skinner for more information.
