First Eucharist, First Reconciliation, Holy Redeemer Parish
We have made alterations to the First Reconciliation / First Eucharist Preparation Program. Children in the program will NOT meet every week, as previously scheduled. Instead, they will only meet every other week, on Sundays from 11:45 AM - 1:15 PM. Since they will not be meeting every weekend, parents will be expected to do the take-home sessions with their children that other grades have to do as part of the program. Thank you for your patience as we juggle two parishes as one Lifelong Faith Formation department and work to create a program that serves the children and the busy lives of parents.
Save the date
Celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation Date has been changed.
It will now be: February 1st at 11:00 AM.
Please check the schedule linked above for information on "rehearsal" day and other parent meetings.
To prepare for the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist, a candidate must be enrolled in the parish Faith Formation program or attend Catholic school for at least one year prior (usually grade 1) and during the year of immediate preparation. The family is directly involved in preparing the child for the sacrament.
