Children must attend Religious Education classes for a year prior to beginning the preparation for First Communion. First Communion preparation happens within the parish as a whole, which means families from the school and Religious education come together to learn and celebrate.
To equip the parents with adult knowledge and appreciation of the sacraments, we have three adult only faith formation sessions during your child’s year sacramental preparation.
At the Enrollment Ceremony in October you child will receive THE GOLD BOOK you will work through the book with your child. THE GOLD BOOK is a wonderful opportunity for you to share in the gift Jesus has given to us all, the Eucharist, with your child.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a gift of healing, so nothing is holding us back from experiencing union with Christ through Eucharist. Your child will participate in a Reconciliation Peace Service in Lent, prior to celebrating Eucharist during the Easter Season (in May).
