The Holy Eucharist is the second step in Christian initiation. The sacrament of first Eucharist is offered to children in second grade or older in the spring of each year. Preparation is done via Religious Education at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, unless the child attends religious classes at a Catholic school. Special considerations are available.
Baptized adults, who desire the sacraments of Eucharist or Confirmation for the first time, may participate in in Rites of Christian Initiation of Adults or by special arrangement. Candidates are gradually introduced to aspects of Catholic beliefs and practices.

Homebound Eucharistic Ministers bring the Eucharist, a bulletin and the recognition that we know you’re away. We visit with parishioners who are homebound because of illness or other personal needs. This can be a temporary or a lasting arrangement. For more information please contact the Parish Office at 864.233.7717.
