The First Holy Communion is a Catholic ceremony, which marks a child or adult’s first reception of the Sacrament of the Eucharist. It is an extremely important event in a Catholic family’s life and is marked with celebrations, family gatherings and festive parties as well as gift-giving and special white clothes. The white symbolizes purity and newness while gifts are mainly religious in nature. The First Communion generally takes place when a child is around 7 or 8 years of age.
