FIRST RECONCILIATION & EUCHARIST – Grade 2 and Up
Sacrament Preparation for the 2020-2021 school year will be proceeding with some adaptations. Due to the pandemic, this year’s Sacrament instruction will be home based with parents being the primary educators of their children.
Children in Grade Two and up can prepare for their First Reconciliation and First Communion. Preparation for Reconciliation will take place in October and November with the Celebration of the Sacrament in December. Preparation for First Communion will begin in February 2021 with the Celebration of the Sacrament in Spring 2021. More information on preparing for First Communion will go out later this year.
This home-based program does not require gathering in the church except for the actual celebration.
To support this at home learning, the Diocese has made available coaching sessions for parents via Zoom. These sessions will be offered on various dates and times to accommodate as many families as possible. Each session is an hour long and they are for parents only.
Please see the Diocese schedule of Reconciliation preparation sessions here and choose a convenient time for each session (you only need to choose one for each Session). These sessions are not mandatory but are designed to help parents feel enabled to help their children grow in their faith.
Registrations are now closed.
