A couple in New Jersey says their 8-year-old son is being denied the chance to make his First Communion by their church because he is autistic.
Jimmy LaCugna posted on Facebook that he and his wife were told their son won't be able to participate because the boy is "unable to determine right from wrong due to his disability."
He also said they were told his son is not at the "benchmark required to make his communion."
The church says it follows the Code of Canon Law.
