Online First Communion invitations

First Communion is a meaningful milestone to celebrate and give blessings as a child steps into their spiritual journey. There's no better way to experience this special sacrament than sharing it with family and friends. Whether you’re sending a joyful announcement or inviting those closest to you for an in-person celebration, our devotional designs bring spiritual appeal to your message.

Announcing a First Communion

Friends and family will naturally be excited about your First Holy Communion announcement, and seeing your digital card open up before their eyes only adds to the enthusiasm. Get the ball rolling with our customizable designs that bring charismatic charm to your news. Our easy-to-use design tools help you create a unique first communion announcement that reflects how you want to remember the day.

How to choose a First Communion invitation design

A First Communion is a momentous occasion, and the design you choose for the announcement or invitation typically reflects the significance of the event. Our collection of religious invitations features a variety of designs that deliver your divine news in the exact aesthetic you want. Opt for a simple template featuring a cross motif and scrolling scripture to keep the focus on the event, or choose a design that features a photograph to pull the celebrant into the spotlight.

How to customize a First Holy Communion invitation

You bet! Our online design tool will let you put a personal spin on your First Communion invitation or announcement card with candid photos, customized fonts, envelope style, your choice of colors, and more.

Once you’ve finalized your design, make sure that every important family member is accounted for. We doubt your kid has been updating their address book, so use your phone or e-mail contacts or draw from previous invitations and cards you’ve sent. You’ll be able to track who’s opened their invitation, and who’s RSVPed—and do feel free to send an online reminder to any invitees. We make it easy and discreet to keep in touch on the go.

When should you send a First Communion announcement or invitation?

It's generally best practice to send First Communion announcement cards within one month of the big day (whether before or after). Sending First Communion invitations to guests one month before the event gives you and your family enough time to prepare while giving guests enough time to RSVP and make travel plans.

Busy schedule? Not a problem. Say goodbye to post office lines and postage stamps when you choose our online cards. You can even schedule your First Communion announcement or invitation beforehand, then let us send it off on your behalf.

After the First Communion

Once your child’s First Holy Communion has taken place, let guests who attended the service know how appreciative you are with a thank you card. You can create them at the same time as your invitations and schedule them to be sent automatically at a later date.
