Registration, preparation and coordination of the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation for all children in the Parish are done through the Immaculate Heart of Mary Faith Formation Department. As envisioned by the Second Vatican Council, the preparation for the celebration of these sacraments resides within the family and the parish community. This acknowledges parents as the primary educators of their children in the ways of faith.
First Reconciliation preparation occurs about the age of 8 (2nd grade and older) and takes place before First Eucharist. The program consists of 8 lessons taught by the parents at home. Preparation begins in the fall and ends with a service of prayers, readings and individual reconciliation during Advent. The option exist for individual Reconciliation as well.
Session Schedule: Fall 2015 TBD
