In order to begin preparation in the 2nd grade for these sacraments children must have completed First Grade Religious Education classes. A letter will be sent to all 2nd grade parents in the fall regarding sacramental preparation classes.
 
Reconciliation – First Penance:
After completing First Grade, the immediate preparation for  First Penance takes place in Second Grade.  The parents are required to attend Sunday Mass regularly and special meetings prior to the celebration of this sacrament.   Along with the parish preparation classes, parents are given information packets to help prepare their children at home. The Reconciliation Service usually takes place in church on a Saturday morning in January.  The children will also participate in “Our Father Day” a retreat time set aside to further prepare them to participate in this sacrament of God’s forgiveness.
 
Eucharist – First Communion:
After completing First Grade, the immediate preparation for First Communion takes place in Second Grade.  The parents are required to attend Sunday Mass regularly and special meetings prior to First Eucharist. The first communion celebrations take place in May. Parents are given the opportunity to choose their date and time from the mass selections given. These dates are sent out in the fall.
