First Reconciliation & Eucharist

Preparing Children to Receive Christ in the Eucharist and in the Sacrament of Reconciliation

Children usually make their First Communion in 2nd grade, at the age of 7 or 8.  To prepare their hearts to best receive the body and blood of Christ, they first celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as the Sacrament of Penance or Confession). Preparation for these sacraments involves meetings at the church for parents and children, as well as some guided home study.  Below is the schedule for 2018/19:
