It is now required that all students preparing for First Communion/First Reconciliation must have completed one year of religious education or Catholic School before their preparation year. The hope is to have all students enrolled in RE or Catholic School their 1st grade year.
According to the National Catechetical Directory, “Children are normally to be prepared for the sacrament of Reconciliation prior to receiving First Communion.” Our second graders are prepared for Reconciliation in the fall. There is a parent meeting in September to provide adult formation and updated information on the sacrament. Parents will receive the materials needed to prepare their children at home. Additionally sacramental families participate in a Reconciliation Retreat in late October. All students participating in the program must register online.
