First Holy Communion Mass

First Holy Communion Preparation

The Archdiocese of Madrid mandates a 3 year period of preparation for the celebration of First Holy Communion. Given that many of our English-speaking families move frequently, we will gladly accept a letter which certifies the amount of a child’s previous preparation.

Children must be fluent in English. A copy of the candidate’s baptismal certificate must be on file with us before the celebration of the sacrament. Please submit as soon as possible.

First Communion is only open to registered parishioners. Attendance is taken for all the Sunday classes and frequent absences will cause a child to be delayed in their reception of this most important sacrament.

All other details of First Holy Communion at OLM are found below.
