First Holy Communion

Receiving Your First Holy Communion?

Ordinarily, those young people who are candidates to receive their first communion should complete a sacramental preparation program. While we sponsor such a program here at St. Francis deSales, we welcome those members of the parish, who have been prepared by their parents or guardians, for this sacrament to the reception of first communion. You are able to contact our religious education person at the parish office 513-961-1945


In conversation with the pastor, the parents or guardians of the person receiving first communion, may select an appropriate date and time for the celebration of this sacrament. Usually this sacrament is celebrated at either of the Sunday Masses when convenient for the family and fitting in the parish schedule.

Arrangements for the celebration of the sacrament are subject to diocesan regulations as well as the availability of the church.
