First Reconciliation (Penance)

This sacrament offers a continuing process of conversion through which Christians are forgiven of sin and reconciled with God and with the community of faith.  First Reconciliation is celebrated with a strong family emphasis.  This is a two year preparation process beginning in the first grade and concluding with the celebration of the sacrament in the fall of the second grade year.  Religious educators in the school, parish GIFT program, and the Religious Education Office assist parents in preparing their child for this sacrament.  The calendar for 2017-2018 is as follows:

Parent meeting: Monday, September 11th from 9-10:30 A.M. or  Tuesday, September 12th from  7-8:30 P.M.  Both meetings will be held in the Adult Formation Rooms.

Workshop:  Saturday, September 30th from 9-11:30 A.M. or Saturday, October 14th from 9-11:30 A.M.  Both are in the new Multipurpose Building. 

Celebration of the sacrament: Saturday, October 28th at 10 A.M.  in the Church.

Children above second grade age are prepared for this sacrament separately. To arrange for such preparation, contact the Director of Religious Education, Therese Carroll-Caruso, at 897-5207.
