We traditionally begin preparation for First Reconciliation and First Communion in 1st Grade and the children receive the Sacrament in 2nd Grade. [See Intermediate Sacramental Preparation for children in 3rd Grade and up]. Sacramental Preparation is a HOME-BASED program that provides opportunity for the children and their families to prepare as per the Church’s teaching, “as to understand the mystery of Christ according to their capacity and receive the Body of the Lord with faith and devotion.”
1st Reconciliation/1st Communion preparation will begin with a Parent session in September (outlining the Sacramental Program for the year). Classes will begin in October at FFF Sunday with one additional class per month through April. All additional sessions will be after the 10 AM Mass 11:15-12:30 PM (except for the rehearsal). All sessions are MANDATORY and at least one parent must attend. See Sacramental Prep calendar for dates and details (coming soon).
