Children of the parish receive First Communion in the spring. Preparation begins in October and classes are on Sundays at the same time as our Faith Formation classes. Session I is from 9:45 am to 10:45 am and Session II is from 12:15 to 1:15 pm. Children may be enrolled in the program if they have participated in at least one year of prior religious education. Parents are required to join their children for the classes and celebrations. The curriculum focuses on learning the prayers and actions of Mass. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is included as part of this 25 week program with students making their first Confession in December. Sacramental preparation is not grade specific, however, students for First Communion are generally in second or third grade.
