Children normally receive First Eucharist during their second grade year. The children are first prepared for Reconcilation (usually September - December) and then prepared for First Eucharist (January - April or May).


Preparation for First Eucharist is a parish program. At St. Mary's it consists of several components.

The first component is the grade level sessions. The children attend classes with other children their age. These classes take place during the Religious Ed sessions.

The second component is WCC - Whole Community Catechesis. All children preparing for First Eucharist attend WCC with their families.

A third component is the three family retreats. These usually take place on Saturday mornings from 10 - noon.

Finally, all children and their families are asked to attend a Passover re-enactment.

Older children who have not yet been prepared for First Eucharist follow a similar process.

If you have questions about First Eucharist preparation, please contact Kathy Reilly, 541-926-1449 ext 303 or



Adults who have not yet received First Eucharist, usually take part in the RCIA process. Again, if you have questions, please call Kathy at 541-926-1449 ext 303 or email:
