Communion depends on the church. Some do it once a month, every fortnight or every week.
The Church of Christ (very conservative) I went to as a kid did it every week. The Presbyterian church I was part of did it once a month. I've been in AOG churches like Hillsong and they do it occasionally. I go to a Uniting church now and they do it fortnightly.
Doesn't really help clarify does it!!!??

First Communion is celebrated in other denominations, such as Anglican and Lutheran, where infant baptism is practiced. It is then usually followed by confirmation at a later age, where the child can confirm the promises that were made for them at their baptism. Churches that practice believer's baptism (where you need to be old enough to make the choice yourself) don't do first communion or confirmation.

I'm a pretty conservative Catholic but teach ecumenical scripture sometimes at the public school I teach at. It's helpful to recognise what different groups believe and those areas Rainbow Sky highlighted are probably the real biggies, along with communion for Catholics being Jesus' real Presence.
However, I would like to point out that there is so much more that unites us than divides us, as someone on the first page pointed out.
Catholic schools will not always teach exactly what you believe (or even what Catholics believe, if they're non-Catholic or non-practising teachers, for example). But they are still Christ-focused schools, which is one of the reasons why so many non-Catholic children attend them.
Like BrownSugar, I didn't realise until I was an adult that the immaculate conception did not apply to Jesus but to Mary, according to Catholic tradition.
In response to ShanandBoc, (sorry if its off the OP) we must remember that the Bible does not represent everything Jesus and His followers said and did. There's not enough space!
St Paul recognised this when he was frequently explaining stuff which was not in the Gospels. Of course, it all fits together but Christians often do and believe things which may not be spelled out explicitly in a biblical quote (eg. Prolife stuff).
Catholics believe that Jesus left authority with the Church to interpret the grey areas which would come up. Thus, in Acts, Sts Peter and Paul and other apostles began making decisions about what Jesus meant which later became Church Tradition. Catholics believe that St Peter's successor still has that authority.

There is a great difference between catholic and christian theology and practice. It is not just a case of different denominations like baptist, Pentecostals ect. If your children do go to a christian church, the differences will be very confusing, your husband is not being close minded in that regard. I have seen many kids put into confusing positions because school teaches one thing and parents and church teach another.
