Reconciliation & Eucharist
The preparations for the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Eucharist (First Holy Communion) are provided at special meetings with parents and children throughout the 2nd grade year. PROVIDED THE CHILD HAS ATTENDED FAITH FORMATION IN FIRST GRADE.
These sacraments are a sacred gift and steps on a life of faith that will last a lifetime. Therefore, our sacrament preparation focuses on the grace and blessings that come with these gifts and what is expected of those who receive them.
Beginning in 2017, Youth entering 8th grade will be receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. 8th Grade will now be the standard year for reception of the Sacrament. This is a very exciting time in the lives of these youth, as they get to confirm their beliefs and commit for themselves the same promises their parents and godparents made for them at Baptism. To prepare them, there will be workshops throughout the coming months. Part of their preparation will be attending Faith Formation Classes on Monday Evenings from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.
The Sacrament of Confirmation will be administered by Bishop Edward Malesic on Thursday, May 3, 2018 at the Historic Church of St. Peter, Brownsville at 7pm.
