First Reconciliation and First Eucharist for Children
After Baptism, we continue our initiation into the Catholic faith by celebrating the Sacraments of Holy Eucharist and Confirmation. Reconciliation is a Sacrament of Healing. Reconciliation and Eucharist are celebrated at different times and ages usually the process begins at the age of 6 to 7. Preparation for these Sacraments has a requirement of at least three years. Children are involved in a process requiring enrollment in a Faith Formation program or Catholic school.

Occasional parent sessions and family gatherings are required as well as a half-day retreat for both youth and parents before First Eucharist.

Stewardship is about understanding that God gave us life—along with a unique set of gifts, and calls us to share them with the world. Jesus’ call is urgent! Every person is invited and encouraged to become engaged to the needs of the parish. Embrace opportunities to foster a sense of belonging with other parish members of our faith community! As Jesus’ disciples, we respond by offering time, talent, and treasure.
