Sacramental Preparation for Children

Reconciliation  and First Communion

The usual time for the celebration of these Sacraments is at the grade 2 level. Older children are also welcome to attend the program. The children journey in a program that helps them discover God’s forgiveness through joy, love and peace, and how in the Eucharist they are nourished by Jesus, the Bread of Life. Reconciliation prepares our hearts to receive Jesus, truly present in the Eucharist. The program is age appropriate and supported by family and parish life. Parents are an integral part of the preparation process and will help guide their children through the program. Preparation for First Reconciliation will occur in the Fall. Preparation for First Communion will occur in the Spring. Dates will become available for the Spring session at a later time.

This July Bishop Hagemoen made the announcement that Confirmation will no longer be taking place at the grade 2 level and will be moved to grade 6. Registration and preparation for Confirmation will be taking place in the New Year. Please see the Bishop’s letter for more information on the move to grade 6.
