First Holy Communion
Preparation Expectations for the Sacrament of Reconciliation and
Reception of First Holy Communion
Dates for the Sacraments - We will establish these after we hear from the Bishop about our assigned Confirmation date. (Communion-probably a Saturday in April)
This is such an important year for Your child!
We all want them to understand what a special gift they are being given by God, through His mercy, in the Sacrament of Reconciliation and through His very body and blood in the Sacrament of the Eucharist. We will do our best to assist and guide you in their preparation.
Students will need to know the following prayers:
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, & Act of Contrition
Other expectations for receiving the sacraments:
Regular class attendance and make up missed sessions
Regular Sunday mass participation
Regularly participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation after the sacrament is received initially (every 6-8 weeks)
We must have a copy of the child’s baptismal certificate on file, unless he/she was baptized here at St. Patrick’s for the sacrament.
