We prepare children for First Confession and First Holy Communion beginning in the first grade. The children are taught the basic prayers and are given the foundation of their faith. There is recitation of prayers, story telling, arts and crafts, and a lot of hands-on activities that foster learning.
In second grade the children review what they’ve learned the previous year and begin a more intensive program to prepare them to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
First Confession usually takes place in Lent. Once the Sacrament of Penance has been received, we begin preparation for First Communion.
Traditionally, First Communion is held on the Saturday before the First Sunday in May. The children are also involved in the May Procession for Mother Mary the next day.
Children are expected to attend Mass on all Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation. Children are expected to attend all classes in the school year.
