Preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist
Second grade students of St. Patrick families are invited to register for Sacramental Preparation. Religious Education for 1st and 2nd grade through the Catholic School or Parish School of Religion is required to register. Our Sacramental Preparation for First Reconciliation begins in September and is celebrated in January. First Eucharist preparation begins in January and is celebrated in the spring.
The Catholic Church recognizes that parents are the first educators of their children, therefore preparation includes an orientation with parents, take home materials and retreats. We are looking forward to working with you to prepare your child for the important events of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist.
According to Diocesan Guidelines, Sacramental Preparation must take place in the parish in which you are registered.
