The First Reconciliation and First Communion program is centered on family instruction, supplemented by classroom time and family projects. The parish community shares in the instruction as the children are taught the parts of the liturgy during six masses at the 10:15 service. Classes are from 9:15 until 10:00 and follow the regular Faith Formation schedule.
First Reconciliation is received during Jesus Day in April. The children also participate in several workshops in preparation for First Communion. The day ends with family and friends at the 4:30 liturgy followed by a special celebration in Lynch Hall.
First Communion is usually celebrated the Saturday before Mother’s Day and is typically received by children in their 2nd grade year in school.
