Notre Dame Academy First Holy Communion celebration

Notre Dame Academy’s 2nd grade students and families joyfully celebrated their First Holy Communion on May 13. Father Nick Dempsey was the officiate of their Sacrament held at St. Therese of Carmel Church in Carmel Valley.

Every year NDA families gather together following the ceremony to commemorate this important milestone with a “student-inspired” reception. This year the celebration was held at Fairbanks Ranch Country Club with entertainment provided by Xtreme Fun.

Although the reception was “student-inspired,” the parents enjoyed the games and cupcakes as much as their children. Notre Dame Academy provides a strong academic education in a vibrant Catholic culture for students in Preschool through 8th grade.
