Children must have attended first grade Faith Formation or a Catholic School to receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist in their second (2nd) grade year.
Children in second grade or older, who have not been enrolled in Faith Formation or a Catholic grade school and who have not received their First Sacraments, must attend one full year of instruction PRIOR to the year in which the Sacraments are to be received.
Registration for these programs takes place in August.
All registered students preparing for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist and their parent/s attend the scheduled Parent/Child Meetings. Program details and books are given at the first scheduled meeting for each sacrament.
In Baptism we become children of God, members of the Church and followers of Jesus. In the Sacrament of Reconciliation God forgives us the sins we commit after Baptism. We are reconciled with God and with others in the Church.
The Eucharist is the sacrament of the real presence of Jesus under the appearances of bread and wine. It is the Family Meal of the People of God. It is the prayer of thanksgiving that unites us to one another through sharing in the Body and Blood of our Lord.
