Holy Communion

The Eucharist is the central action in which Christians remember and participate in the presence of Jesus in their midst.  It is a memorial of the Lord’s passion, death and resurrection.  This holy sacrifice is both a commemoration of a past event and a celebration of it hear and now.

Join us to celebrate the Eucharist at daily or weekend mass!

First Communion

First Communion is a milestone in a child’s journey toward full initiation into the Body of Christ. This sacrament allows our children to experience the wonder and mystery of entering into a Holy Communion with God. If your child is not enrolled in St. Norbert School, arrangements to prepare for this sacrament are made through the Religious Education Office.

CONTACT: Mark Griswold, Director of Family Life to inquire about your child’s preparation for First Communion at 610.644.1655, ext. 114 or
