Preparation for First Holy Communion in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles is a two year process. At OLA we begin that process in 2nd grade and offer preparation for children of all grades through 8th grade. We offer 1st grade faith formation classes, but they do not count towards the preparation for First Holy Communion and are not required. We also offer continuing formation for children after the reception of First Communion all the way through 8th grade. Enrollment occures mid-June through end of August with classes begining the second week of September.
