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 current calendar is as follows:
