FIRST EUCHARIST

Our diocese requires that all children preparing for a sacrament must have at least two years of consecutive formal religious formation in a Faith Formation program or Catholic school during the preparation.  The current enrollment in the Faith Formation program can be counted as the second year. 

 

The First Reconciliation is the first part of our First Sacraments program which precedes our First Eucharist preparation program.  One must make their First Reconciliation before entering the First Eucharist preparation program.  Below is our First Sacrament preparation program for this year.
