Preparation Process for First Reconciliation

Children normally celebrate their First Reconciliation in 2nd grade.  In addition to the instruction the children receive in the school or PSR program, the preparation process includes a family component.  There are two sessions for parents and children in the fall, usually in October and November, before the celebration of Reconciliation in December.  Families receive a Family Guide and a child’s book at the first session to use at home in preparing the children for the celebration of the sacrament.
