First Penance & Communion

The 3rd Graders of our Parish receive the Sacraments of Penance and Reconciliation and Eucharist.  First Penance usually takes place in January. First Communion is celebrated in May. Preparation for these sacraments includes class instruction and study, participation in our Parent/Child Retreat and attendance at practices.

The parents of children preparing to receive these sacraments are required to attend our Sacrament Sunday which usually takes place in the fall. Sacrament Sunday is a day for parents to receive information and formation about preparing their children for the sacraments.
