Reconciliation and First Communion


2020-2021 First Reconciliation and First Communion 

We are so excited to have your child receive their First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion at our parish! Any child who has been baptized in the Catholic Church and is at least in 2nd grade is eligible to start preparing for these sacraments.

If your child is in 7th grade or higher and has not received First Holy Communion, or if your child was baptized in another faith please contact Trista Minezes separately because the preparation for these students to receive Holy Communion might be different.
