First Reconciliation and First Eucharist

The preparation for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist is an active event in the lives of our parish children and their families. The actions of belonging, gathering, listening, celebrating, giving and going forth 51e1f464fd802910ad9fd6572f25d956are stressed in the context of the Mass throughout the preparation year. It is a participatory process and we offer required sessions for parents to enable them to fully support their children throughout this time.

Preparation for these two sacraments is conducted for students in Grade 2 as a part of the second grade curriculum. Students in Grade 3 and above who have not received these sacraments will be enrolled in Special Sacraments classes. 

All students preparing for these sacraments must have been enrolled in and actively participating in Faith Formation classes or attending a Catholic school for the school year immediately preceding the preparation year.
