What Do Catholics Wear For First Communion?

When Catholic children reach the age of seven or eight, they are typically ready to celebrate their first Holy Communion. This is a very special day for them and their families, and preparations often begin long before the big event. One of the most important decisions that need to be made is what to wear! Here at St. Jude Shop, we carry a wide selection of First Communion dresses for girls and suits for boys alike. Let's take a closer look at some of the different styles that are popular among Catholic families.

Why First Communion is a Milestone Event

First Communion is an important milestone in the Catholic faith. It is a time when children are first able to receive the Eucharist and fully participate in the Mass. This special day is often celebrated with a large party or family gathering. First Communion is a day to remember for a lifetime, and we are honored to be a part of it!

First Communion Dresses for Girls

When it comes to First Communion dresses, there are endless possibilities. Many girls choose to wear a white dress that is similar to what they would wear for a special occasion such as a wedding or graduation. Others prefer something more simple and understated.
