The First Holy Communion, is a Catholic ceremony for a person's first reception of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.
The Holy Eucharist, also called Holy Communion, is a Catholic sacrament generally considered to be a re-enactment of the Last Supper, the final meal that Jesus Christ shared with his disciples before his arrest and crucifixion, during which he gave them bread, saying, "This is my body", and wine, saying, "This is my blood".
For Catholics, when communion wafers (bread) are consecrated by a priest during mass, they cease to be bread, and become instead the Most Precious Body and Blood of Christ.
