First Holy Communion is a rite of the Catholic Church.  Girls and boys at around the age of seven or eight years traditionally make their First Holy Communion, after a series of classes held at their Catholic school or church, and a grounding of the catechesis by their parents, as they are deemed capable at that age of understanding the miracle of the Eucharist.

The event is a cause for celebration because the children are at that point called to the table of the Lord.  Girls traditionally wear a white dress and accessories to symbolise purity and as a reminder of their christening gown and a veil to cover the head for modesty.  Boys will wear their best suits.
