New Classes for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion for Grade 2 students or older.
This includes classes for Parents and Children to attend together at the church, as well as scheduling dedicated study time together at home prior to reception of the Sacraments.
At OLPH First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion are usually offered when a child is grade 2 or older.
First Communion means that this will be the first time that a child is participating “fully” in the Mass by receiving the Eucharist.
Just like we begin every Mass by praying the Penitential (Act of Contrition) to prepare our hearts to receive Jesus in the Eucharist, First Reconciliation must be completed prior to First Holy Communion.
EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org to Register
$30 Registration fee for Workbooks and Class Materials and a copy of your child’s Baptism Certificate will be required to complete registration. Classes will start in November. SELECTIONS
