First Sacraments


First Sacraments

First Sacraments

Most children begin and complete preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist in second grade. Besides the classroom instruction in school or faith formation, children receive ongoing help at home from their parents and guardians. Materials are provided by the parish.

Parent/guardian participation is an essential component of sacramental formation and preparation. Parents partner with the parish ensuring children are prepared for the reception of the sacraments.
