Second Grade Sacraments
Religious Education offers preparation programs in second grade for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion. Parish policy expects children to be in religious education classes at least one year prior to the year receiving the sacrament.
Preparation for these Sacraments begins with parents, as parents are the primary teachers of the children in our faith.
Parents who have registered their children for classes will receive information in the mail about meetings and events for these Sacraments.
Parents are asked to attend two meetings. At the first meeting in October, parents learn about Reconciliation, while at the second meeting in January, they learn more about Communion. At the meetings, parents also receive materials to use at home to extend the learning from their child's classroom, and they receive important information about details and dates for the celebrations.
- First Reconciliation: Saturday, December 9, at 9:00 AM at St. John Evangelist
- First Eucharist Mass:
- Sunday, April 22 at St. John Evangelist
- Sunday, April 29 at Blessed Trinity
- Specific dates for parent meetings and practice times are listed on page 2 of this Religious Education Class Schedule 2017-2018.
The following curricula and experiences help students prepare for the Sacraments.
