Most children receive first communion when they are about seven or eight years and in Grade Two.  It is an event that they study carefully for, and there is much preparation leading up to this event.  For example, first confession is usually taken about one week before as the children must be without sin and in a state of grace in order to receive their first sacrament.  First communion is an event that is celebrated by families in many ways.  Children often wear special outfits, and white is usually the predominant colour as it represents innocence and purity.  Although some people dress their boys in white, first communion outfits for boys are often in more sombre colours like black, navy or grey, much like the groom at a wedding. 

Although first communion outfits for girls often incorporate religious symbols, the first communion outfits for boys do not usually incorporate as many religious symbols.  The most common outfits usually include a white shirt, a suit jacket and trousers, and usually dress shoes.  Vests are also commonly worn, as well as ties, either standard ties or bow ties.  Sometimes the times are woven of special fabrics that incorporate religious symbols or the tie tack itself incorporates for example a crucifix.   Sometimes the first communion suit is very formal, as a tuxedo.

Many families celebrate first communion by having a large party that includes extended family and friends.  There is often a large meal served after communion and a professional photographer is usually hired for the occasion.  Dressed in their first communion outfits for boys, and their first communion dresses for girls, the children are usually proud to have their photos taken all dressed up and the photo is cherished for many years and often put on display in the family house.  It is indeed a proud moment, as the children receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist for the first time, which represents the body and the blood of Jesus Christ which is the sacrament at the heart of Catholicism.

When you are looking for first communion outfits for boys, you will find that they are readily available at fine department stores as well as on the internet.  Most online suppliers have a size chart that you can use together with the measurements of your boy to determine an appropriate fit.  You will need to measure their arms, chest, waist and the length of their inseam for their pants.  You will also need their shoe size if you are ordering shoes.  While you can order the suit, the shirt, and the shoes and accessories as separates, they are often also available as a kit with everything included. 

Along with their first communion outfits for boys, many boys also receive first communion gifts.  These can include jewellery, like watches or crucifixes, as well as prayer books, first communion medals or medals of the saints, and rosary beads.  These gifts are usually very good quality and are designed to remind the child of the special first communion event, as well as provide them with icons that will help to remind them of their special passage into Catholicism
