Holy Communion - Our Easter Duty: Because of the central importance of Easter to the Christian faith, the Catholic Church requires that all Catholics who have made their First Communion receive the Holy Eucharist sometime during the Easter season, which lasts through to Pentecost 50 days after Easter. (The Church also urges us to take part in the Sacrament of Confession before receiving this Easter communion). This reception of the Eucharist is a visible sign of our faith and our participation in the Kingdom of God. Of course, although we should receive Holy Communion as frequently as possible; this "Easter Duty" is simply the minimum requirement set by the Church.
