First Reconciliation

Sacrament of Healing (Reconciliation)


Traditionally First Reconciliation is celebrated in 2nd grade.  It is part of the Sacramental Preparation and is usually celebrated during the fall so the children can go to the sacrament of Reconciliation during the seasons of Advent and Lent before they receive their Confirmation and First Eucharist in the Easter Season.

Communal Penance Services with individual confession are available throughout the city during the seasons of Advent and Lent.
