First Communion and Reconciliation

Preparation for First Communion and First Reconciliation begins in second grade. First Reconciliation will take place in December. First Communions will take place after Easter.

Parents of second grade students will receive information regarding a parent meeting in October to prepare for First Reconciliation, and a First Communion retreat for students and parents in January. All families are expected to participate in these two events.

Parents are the primary catechists of their children. Please continue to take an active role in your child’s preparation by taking them to Mass every Sunday, praying at home, discussing what they learn in CCD at home, and talking to them about what the Eucharist and being part of the Church family mean to you.
