The preparation for the sacraments begins at home throughout the early life of the child and continues throughout a child's entire religion program. It is intensified in the school program near the time of the child’s reception of the sacraments.
Preparation for First Reconciliation begins in the fall of second grade with a parent meeting. As the day of reconciliation approaches, a mini-retreat for parents and child is held to enhance the preparation for the sacrament. The First Reconciliation celebration occurs in the month of January.
Students have the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation periodically throughout the school year.
