First Holy Communion

REQUIREMENTS: Children should be within the age of reason (at least 7 years old or older) and in second grade or older), and already baptized in a Catholic church or a church of a Christian denomination recognized by the USCCB, in order to receive First Holy Communion. They should also have at least two years of religious formation completed before they celebrate First Holy Communion. If your child does not meet these requirements, please contact Max Almenas, DRE, or call 201-461-4261.   


IMPORTANT: CTT parents have the option of having their child celebrate 1st Holy Communion and/or Confirmation ceremonies at Madonna Church or their parish. 

If you are a registered parishioner from another parish, you will need a letter of permission from your pastor to have your child celebrate their sacrament at Madonna Parish.

Please inform the Madonna Religious Formation office where your child will celebrate their sacraments in advance. Contact: Max Almenas for more information: 201-461-4261 or
