First Reconciliation and First Communion
Preparation for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion in 2020 being with a Parent/Child Kick Off Meeting on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at 6:45 PM in the Church.
First Reconciliation and First Communion are ordinarily celebrated in second grade. Any child in the 2nd grade through 8th grade may prepare in this program.
Parents must register their children for this preparation process. Parents and children attend an orientation session, do sacrament preparation activities at home, and attend a retreat, two required workshop sessions, and attend a reconciliation and rehearsal before First Communion.
