Sacramental Preparation: First Eucharist
Preparation and first reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist take place during the second grade.
The Sacrament books we will use during the 2017-2018 school year will be “Reconciliation” and “Eucharist” published by RCL Benzinger. Each chapter of the book has a family component that we encourage families to share at home. These can be found at the RCL Benzinger website. Please log on to www.faithfirst.com and follow the link titled “Sacraments.”
