First Holy Communion & First Reconciliation

Welcome to this most wonderful year! Celebrating a sacrament for the first time is an important step in the life of a child as a Catholic Christian. In recognizing parents as the primary religious educators of their children, our sacramental preparation relies on the cooperation of family for preparing the children for First Reconciliation and First Communion. Parents also have the responsibility to see that their child attends Mass each Sunday.

For the Sacrament of Reconciliation, children need to

  • learn the Ten Commandments
  • learn the Act of Contrition
  • review The Individual Rite of Reconciliation

If you are interested in enrolling your child in the preparation classes for First Communion and First Reconciliation, please contact the Faith Formation office at 812-282-2677
