First Reconciliation & First Holy Communion
Sacramental Preparation Program Overview
This program is open to all baptized Catholic students in the second grade or older that have completed a year of faith formation last year either here at the parish or in a Catholic School. The order of this year is mandated by the Bishops that all children must be prepared for Reconciliation prior to the preparation of the study of the Mass and Eucharist.
A Word of Thanks to All Parents
Thank you, parents, for remaining faithful to the promises that were made at your child’s baptism. Your faith and word to raise your child in the ways of faith and in the Spirit that was given to them at their Baptism has brought you to this day. Your dedication to the faith life of your child will be what rescues them in times of struggle. We can’t go everywhere with our children to protect them, but God can!
Preparation for Children To Receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation (Penance) and Eucharist
First Communion is a very exciting time for a family. The reception for the first time at the Altar of the most Holy Eucharist is the second Sacrament of Initiation for your child and a blessed day for your family. As a part of the preparation for Eucharist, all children must participate in the preparation for the Sacrament of Reconciliation as a prerequisite. The preparation for the Sacrament of Reconciliation is required by the USCCB and the Archdiocese of Baltimore.
