First Reconciliation & Communion
First Reconciliation and First Communion are celebrated in 2nd grade.
Parents/guardians of older students wishing to receive First Reconciliation and First Communion need to contact the office to make sure we have them on the list.
Circle of Saints First Communion Policy: All students requesting to receive First Communion need to be registered prior to the first class with an indication that they are seeking the sacrament. Students should regularly attend weekly RE classes. While the occasional absence is excusable, a significant number of absences will signify that the student is not yet ready to receive the Eucharist. In addition to regular attendance at RE classes, all students and at least one parent/guardian should attend the parent meetings. Parents/guardians are also asked to attend their child's First Reconciliation as well as their First Communion Mass.
First Reconciliation will be celebrated at SM on Wednesday, November 4, 2020 at 6:30pm and at SP on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at 6:45pm. PARENTS PLEASE ATTEND WITH YOUR CHILD.
