A Story of Saint Tarcisius (Patron saint of First Communicants)

Tarcisius was born toward the end of the third century. He secretly carried the Blessed Sacrament to Christians that had been arrested and thrown into prison. These Christians were being tortured by the order of a cruel emperor that wanted them to give up their faith. Tarcisius knew he could be caught and tortured as well and one day some pagan boys wanted to know why he wouldn't stop and play with them. He was martyred that day. Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of Saint Tarcisius by remembering Christ first, hold Him dear to your heart no matter what others are saying or doing.
