First Reconciliation and Eucharist

Sacrament Preparation Dates 2023-2024

“Children’s preparation for the first reception of the Eucharist begins in the home.  The family has the most important role in communicating the Christian and human values that form the foundation for a child’s understanding of the Eucharist.  Children who participate with their family in the Mass experience the Eucharistic mystery in an initial way and gradually learn to join with the liturgical assembly in prayer.”
