First Communion

The Holy Eucharist is the second step in Christian initiation. The sacrament of first Eucharist is offered to children in second grade or older in the spring of each year. Preparation is done via Religious Education at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, unless the child attends religious classes at a Catholic school. Special considerations are available. For information on Religious Education, contact Debra Drennon at


Baptized adults, who desire the sacraments of Eucharist or Confirmation (RCIA) for the first time, may participate in in Rites of Christian Initiation of Adults or by special arrangement. Candidates are gradually introduced to aspects of Catholic beliefs and practices. For information on RCIA, contact Deacon Phil Allen at or tel: 864-967-4263 or Deacon Steve Olson at or tel: 864-288-9220.

Homebound Ministry

Homebound Eucharistic Ministers bring the Eucharist, a bulletin and the recognition that we know you’re away. We visit with parishioners who are homebound because of illness or other personal needs. This can be a temporary or a lasting arrangement. For more information please contact Donna Moerke at |  tel: 404-374-4019.
