Sacramental Prep-First Eucharist & First Reconciliation
To receive a sacrament, the child/youth needs to be baptized, the family registered at the parish, and faithfully attending the faith formation program. Archdiocesan policy requires that a child/youth have completed at least one full year of religious education prior to entering a sacramental program.
FIRST RECONCILIATION & FIRST EUCHARIST are usually received in second grade. There are parent meetings on the history and understanding of the theology of these particular sacraments. The parents are their child’s primary catechists and work with their child at home. A retreat day is scheduled for the child to review their understanding and prepare them for celebration of the Sacraments.
