The preparation for First Reconciliation and Eucharist is taught in second grade or older. It is recommended that the child have one year of Religious Education prior to entering this program. The sacramental preparation is parish wide ~ the children receive some formal instruction in Religious Education classes on Sunday morning or in the parish school and in addition, with the help of the parish, the parents are prepared to also instruct the children at home. There are five parent classes that are required and held in the evenings or by appointment.
