Sacramental Preparation: Reconciliation and First Eucharist

The Religious Education Sacramental Program is a two-year formation process for baptized children at least seven years old. A student must have the equivalent of at least two consecutive years of formation and discernment to be considered a sacramental candidate. Sacramental preparation generally begins in the 1st grade and culminates in the 2nd grade with the celebration of Reconciliation and First Eucharist. Parent participation is an essential component of the sacramental program.
The Reconciliation and Eucharist program includes:

• Parent orientation and formation meetings
• Classroom instruction
• Prayer
• Assembly for Reconciliation
• Celebration of the first reception of  First Eucharist is held at Sunday Masses during the Easter Season.
