First Reconciliation
The Sacrament of First Reconciliation is typically celebrated in December for children in second grade who have been baptized and will be preparing to receive the sacrament of Holy Communion in the Spring.  The parents are required to attend the Parents’ Session in early fall to re-examine their own understanding and practice of the sacrament and how to best prepare their children at home as well.  We will be using the Together in Jesus; First Reconciliation Program combined with lessons and videos from Dynamic Catholic Blessed Program.
