First Reconciliation & First Communion 2016-2017
First Reconciliation & First Communion Sacramental preparation classes are offered in the second grade. These classes are in addition to Sunday Faith Formation classes and are held on Wednesday nights. If your child is older than second grade and has not made his or her First Reconciliation or First Communion, please contact us! Parents are the primary influence in a child’s life and are vital to our programming here as well. Parents attend classes with their children.
By the Sacrament of Confirmation, we are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence, we are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed. “Confirmation brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace” (CCC 1303).

How can I ever express the happiness of a marriage joined by the Church, strengthened by an offering, sealed by a blessing, announced by angels, and ratified by the Father? … How wonderful the bond between two believers, now one in hope, one in desire, one in discipline, one in the same service! They are both children of one Father and servants of the same Master, undivided in spirit and flesh, truly two in one flesh. Where the flesh is one, one also is the spirit (Tertullian, Ad uxorem.).
