First Reconciliation & First Communion

Preparation for each sacrament consists of two consecutive Wednesday evening sessions in addition to the child's PSR program (register here for PSR) or attendance at a Catholic school. Families can choose either series; however, the parent and child need to attend the sessions 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.

Sacrament Registration: For the sacrament preparation sessions, please complete the online Sacrament Workshop Registration Form for your child. Registration for each session closes approximately 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.

Sacrament Information Meetings: Parents of children who will be entering 2nd Grade in the Fall of 2019 and who have actively participated in First Grade PSR or Catholic School are invited to attend. We will be discussing the preparation process for both sacraments as well as providing you the sacrament calendar for the 2019-2020 year. Meetings will take place on the following dates:

  • Thursday, March 28th, 2019: 6:30-7:30 pm, Parish Hall
