Parents are encouraged to bring their children to CCD starting at the first grade. The norm for a student to receive their Sacrament of First Holy Communion is in the third grade. It is highly recommended that students receiving their First Holy Communion continue to attend CCD as a Post First Holy Communion student until they receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
