First Reconciliation and First Communion Preparation
The typical age for children to receive their First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion is during second grade. Our Sacramental Preparation program includes:
An Informational Parent Meeting where parents receive important information about the sacraments and how to best prepare their child.
A Small Group Session for parent and child to attend together - this is where the children prepare for the actual Sacrament.
Home Lessons to be completed together as a family.
Children in grades Kindergarten and first grade are invited to join us on Sundays during the 10:30 AM Mass for Children’s Church. This ministry is designed to provide a quality liturgical experience for children, and to proclaim scripture in a way that children will be able to understand and live out.
The Sunday Readings and Gospel are proclaimed from the Children’s Lectionary. During the offertory, children return to the assembly and complete the celebration of the Mass with their families.
Children’s Church is offered during the school year on select Sundays during the 10:30 AM Mass, excluding major liturgical feasts and other holidays.
Adults and teens are invited to share their time and talents. Visit the Volunteer Sign Up page by CLICKING HERE or contact Theresa at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on participating in this ministry.
Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14
