First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion

At the very heart of St. Lambert Parish is a life freely lived in Jesus Christ – The Sacrament of sacraments. “Let the children come to me” is a profound cry of our Lord to invite each child into greater communion and intimacy with Him. Our response to this invitation is to support the parents in their role as primary educator by helping to sufficiently prepare their children to receive His life, His grace dispensed through the work of the Holy Spirit in the Sacraments.

Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.” John 20: 21-23.

I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.” John 6:51

A person should examine himself, and so eat the bread and drink the cup. 1 Corinthians 11:28
