First Reconciliation & First Communion

Preparation for each sacrament consists of two consecutive Wednesday evening sessions in addition to the child's PSR program or attendance at a Catholic school. Families can choose any of the three series; however, the parent and child need to attend together on the consecutive weeks. It is not possible, for example, to attend the first week in the Fall and the second week in the Spring.

Registration: For the sacrament preparation sessions, please visit our Registration page to complete the online process. Registration for each session closes two weeks prior to the start of each session. Once your child's sacrament preparation is complete, you will be sent the registration form for the sacrament celebration. The Sacrament of First Reconciliation must be celebrated before First Communion preparation can begin. A general registration reminder will be sent on a quarterly basis for the preparation sessions.

Registration Fees: For PSR families, the fee is included in your PSR registration. For all others, there will be a $50 program fee to cover the cost of materials. 

Sacrament Information Meetings: Parents of rising 2nd Graders are invited to get calendar information and learn about changes that will impact your child. Upcoming meeting dates will be announced in the Spring.
