Saturdays 3:30 to 4:30 PM at Sacred Heart
All baptized Catholics who have reached the age of reason (normally considered to be about seven years of age), and who have been properly catechized, should receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation at least once a year, especially those in the state of mortal sin. Going once a month as a family is a great goal.
Preparation for First Reconciliation
Children's Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion are based at Sacred Heart. Preparation for First Reconciliation uses the same schedule as Family Faith Formation. Beginning September 2017, families gather the third Wednesday of the month for catechesis then each week parents and children do the home lessons together. To receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist, the child must have completed Faith Formation classes the previous school year, and must be attending Mass regularly. We are pleased to be using the "Blessed" Program from Dynamic Catholic for First Reconciliation preparation. Program videos which tie in to the books can be found HERE.
