Sacramental Preparation for children
Reconciliation (Penance, Confession) – Second Grade
Special catechesis around the subject of making choices, forgiveness, and reconciliation is part of our broader First Eucharist preparation program. Our program includes 4 large group sessions occurring once per month (Sept. – Dec) with 6 additional at-home lessons. Children celebrate their First Sacrament of Reconciliation at a special service in the month of January. Contact Jennie Caldwell for more information.
First Communion (Eucharist)
RCIA adapted for Children
This program is modeled after and runs parallel to the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). The process begins with the Rite of Welcoming and is designed for young people ages 8 to 16 years of age, who have not been baptized, or who are baptized in another faith tradition.
