The First Communion, or First Holy Communion, is a Christian ceremony held in the Latin Church tradition of the Catholic Church, as well as in many parts of the Lutheran Church and Anglican Communion, although other parts of these denominations traditionally allow reception of Holy Communion after Confirmation.
First Communion is the colloquial name for a person’s first reception of the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist, and in these Christian churches, occurs typically at age seven to twelve when separated from Confirmation, depending on national custom.

Confirmation celebrates the coming of the Holy Spirit. In the Acts of the Apostles chapter 2, verses 1 to 13, we read of the Apostles receiving the Holy Spirit. They had been hiding after Jesus’ death, afraid and uncertain. The coming of the Holy Spirit with his gifts inspired them and enabled them to take the step of preaching the good news.
We are made members of God’s family at Baptism. At Confirmation, our Baptism is completed or “sealed” by the Holy Spirit and we are called to be Christian witnesses, just like the apostles. The whole of our Christian living and the life of the Church, too, are sustained by the same Spirit.
