The Sacrament of Reconciliation, commonly known as confession, or the Sacrament of Penance, is open to children who are also preparing to receive their first Holy Communion. The importance of becoming sensitive to right and wrong and making responsible choices begins at an early age. Children are encouraged to form the habit of frequent confession.
Preparation for First Reconciliation takes place in the context of 2nd grade religious education classes. There must be evidence that the children participating have previously been involved in at least one year of religious education.
Parents of children preparing for First Reconciliation and First Communion are offered a series of classes which will help them participate actively in the sacramental catechesis of their children. As a follow-up to receiving this sacrament, penance services are provided several times a year for the children, and the whole parish religious education program is designed to continue the process of conscience formation.
