First Reconciliation and First Communion


SKU: firstcommunion Categories: , Tags: ,


First Reconciliation

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the Church’s sacraments of healing where Jesus Himself gives us total absolution of our sins. Children entering second grade and above can prepare for this Sacrament. Our classes begin in August and First Reconciliation takes place in November each year. First Reconciliation must be received prior to First Holy Communion.

First Communion

The Sacrament of the Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith where we receive Jesus Christ – Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. After First Reconciliation classes in the Fall, the same students will then participate in First Communion classes. These classes take place starting in January and conclude with First Communion in early May.
