Children must attend preparation classes before making their First Reconciliation

Sacrament Preparation Guidelines(Updated July 2015)

Children are to be enrolled and consistently participating in a Faith Formation program (or attending Catholic school) for one year prior to immediate preparation (1st grade) and throughout the year during preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist (2nd grade).

First Reconciliation will be celebrated before celebrating First Eucharist. First Reconciliation has been permanently moved to the Fall to accommodate this guideline.
