IMPORTANT — Preparing for 1st Communion and 1st Reconciliation is a TWO YEAR process. Regardless if this is your child’s 1st or 2nd year of prep, your children will need to be enrolled in and participating in the parish or school faith formation programs for both years. We want this to be a beautiful encounter with Christ for your child and a good understanding of the sacraments, and blossoming relationship with Christ are a vital part of this, which is why there is a two year process of preparation.
1st Reconciliation is to be celebrated with the family after your child has completed the Reconciliation prep materials and you as a parent feel he or she is ready. Children will not celebrate 1st Reconciliation during school or faith formation hours and it is up to the parent to bring the child to this sacrament. See church bulletin for times.
1st Communions will be celebrated in weekend Masses through out May and June. A sign up to choose a Mass for your child will be sent out Feb 1st to all registered 1st Communion families from the parish and the school.
