First Communion and First Reconciliation

First Communion and First Reconciliation

The Sacrament of First Communion is offered in the 2nd grade.  The child should have attended two years of religious education; both the year the sacrament is given as well as the previous year.  There are 2 mandatory retreats that a parent/guardian and the student must attend.  These are given in the month of December (for the sacrament of Reconciliation) as well as in the Spring (approximately 2-3 weeks before making 1st Communion).  

NOTE:  If your child was not baptized in this Parish, you will need to bring in a copy of the child's baptismal certificate in order to register him/her for classes.
