Receiving the Holy Eucharist at First Communion is the most central and important sacrament, after Baptism, in the life of a Catholic. In preparing for the sacrament, children typically go through catechismal training. They will learn how to properly receive communion in a holy and reverent manner, along with Church doctrine and prayer. All this is done to help develop a deep appreciation and understanding of the precious nature of the true presence of the Body and Blood of Christ.
