First Reconcilation

Preparing to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as Penance) for the first time is exciting.  It is a time to focus on God’s mercy; how we forgive among our family, friends, and community; and how we celebrate forgiveness.  Children of the parish who are in second grade or up are invited to begin the formal preparation to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  In order to register for this preparation, the children must be involved in faith formation for their second year.  Parents play an essential role in the young person’s preparation and books will be available in English or Spanish.  Preparation classes will be available in either the Fall or in Spring.
