The First Communion ceremony is a Catholic, Lutheran and Protestant tradition when a child first receives the Holy Eucharist. Most children are between the ages of seven and eight years old when they receive their First Holy Communion.
The ceremony takes place in the church, with many children receiving their First Communion on the same day. The Holy Communion symbolizes the last Passover meal that Jesus shared with His disciples. The ritual began in the early church to remember the sacrifices and teachings of Jesus. The symbols of this ceremony include crosses, the Eucharist and rosaries. Rosaries and prayer books are often given as gifts to the children.
The ceremony is quite formal, with the girls wearing white dresses and the boys wearing suits. Many children pose for First Communion portraits in the weeks prior to the ceremony, wearing their special attire.
The First Communion ceremony is typically followed by a celebration to mark the milestone. The celebration is usually a brunch or luncheon hosted by the family either at the church, family home or favorite restaurant. The First Communion celebration is a momentous occasion in a young childï¿½s religious life.
Invitation Consultants' First Communion invitations feature the symbols of the ceremony: rosaries, crosses and the Eucharist. We have designs in soft colors including blue, pink, green, purple and gold. Photo invitations have become popular over the years and are ideal to showcase the childï¿½s First Communion portrait.
Beautiful paper, colors and easy ordering process for first communion invitations.
We needed to order our sonâ€™s communion invitations in English and French and it was so easy to do. We saw an emailed proof besides the preview and were very confident, and even more so with the finished product.
I plan to order more invitations from Invitation Consultants.
We wanted a first communion invitation that could be printed with our sonâ€™s photo so it could be a keepsake for the family. We loved the premium paper option for a little texture. Uploading our photos to the preview was really easy and I only needed to call once with a question on wording. They were helpful.
