The Sacrament of First Holy Communion is when a person receives the body and blood of Christ (Holy Eucharist) into themselves via bread and wine. “Those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by Baptism, and configured more deeply to Christ by Confirmation, participate with the whole community in the Lord’s own sacrifice by means of the Eucharist..” — The Catechism of the Catholic Church
