First Reconciliation

(also known as Penance and Confession)

Celebration of First Reconciliation will be during the parish Lenten Reconciliation liturgy on Saturday, February 27, at 10:00 AM. Preparation materials will be ready for pick up the second week of January.

Sacramental preparation is a joint effort with families, parish faith formation programs or school religion classes, and separate sacramental preparation programs in the year the child celebrates sacraments. In order to participate in the process for preparation for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation, the child or youth needs to either attend a Catholic school OR be registered for and regularly attend our regular faith formation program the entire year before and during the year of the sacrament celebration.

Second graders prepare for Reconciliation as part of First Eucharist preparation. Parents who register second graders for First Eucharist preparation will automatically be included in First Reconciliation preparation. Parents of 3rd graders and older who would like their child to celebrate Reconciliation for the first time, please contact the Director of Faith Formation. The celebration of First Reconciliation will be during the parish Lenten Reconciliation liturgy on Saturday, February 27, at 10:00 AM.

If you have any questions about Reconciliation, please contact Lynn in the parish office.
