Children in second grade (or older) may receive the Sacrament of First Communion after sufficient sacramental preparation. Participation with an 80% minimum attendance in weekly religious education classes is required, in addition to First Communion preparation classes that are mandatory.
First Communion usually is celebrated in April or May. Prior to First Communion, candidates must also participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, making their first confession.
First Reconciliation for Children:
Parish children are introduced to the sacrament of God’s love and mercy in the Second Grade before preparation for First Communion.
