First Eucharist (First Communion)
First Reconciliation (First Confession)
Every child who has reached the age of reason (seven) is to be given instruction for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist so that participation in this gift of God's grace may be a free response of faith. Ideally, a child will receive First Reconciliation in second grade and First Eucharist in third grade. Ministers are needed to serve at the various preparation meetings and retreats through out the year. Call Gina Keating at 602-840-0850 for more information.
