6 Confirmation Invitations to Celebrate a First Communion

Bread and a chalice from a confirmation

In the Christian faith, first communion, or confirmation, is an exciting time in a young person’s life. It’s the first time they receive the Eucharist, or the body (bread) and blood (wine) of their savior Jesus Christ. Considered a highlight of their faith, it’s fairly common to send out confirmation invitations, inviting friends and family to share in the experience.

Confirmation traditions vary between denominations, so how you celebrate will depend on your church and your version of Christianity. Young boys and girls celebrate their first communion as early as eight years old in the Catholic Church, while those within the Lutheran and Anglican churches usually receive theirs in middle school.

A first communion service is usually preluded by some sort of class where the child learns the meaning of the Eucharist, various prayers (including the Lord’s prayer), and the history of the church. At the actual church service, they receive communion with the rest of the congregation, and the pastor or priest may say a few words about the children during the sermon. Afterwards, a reception usually follows with cake, punch, coffee, or light snacks with the rest of the congregation.

If you’re planning a first communion, you’ve come to the right place. Below, you’ll find answers to frequently asked questions for planning a reception after the service. You’ll find six confirmation invitations to bring together family, friends, and your fellow congregation on this special day.

8 Going Away Party Invitations to Help You Reminisce

Pardon us while we get a little sentimental here, but there is no greater emotional conflict than sending — or receiving — a going away party invitation.

If a family member, former roommate, or bestie is moving away, you can’t help but be selfishly, lovingly sad for their departure. And yet, you’re completely torn because, whether they’re moving away for a career opportunity, significant other, or to be closer to their family, you ultimately want what’s best for them.

Honestly, it’s one of the hardest things you have to do as an adult, watching your friends move to different cities and start different chapters of their lives. And while it’s hard to imagine your daily life without them, unable to walk over to their apartment, crack open a bottle of wine on a Tuesday, or grab happy hour together when you miraculously get off work at 5 p.m., you’re still grateful for each of those moments.

Goodbyes are so, so hard. We’re not going to sit here and try to tell you otherwise. But what we will say is this: Saying farewell to friends and family should be a time of celebration. You should toast to the great memories you’ve made together, and wish them the absolute best on their new endeavors. So send out these going away party invitations to throw one last bash, and raise your glasses to all the good times spent together.
