Sacramental Preparation: First Reconciliation & Eucharist
Preparation and first reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist take place during the second grade. Like all sacraments, the Sacrament of Reconciliation is to help us in our relationship with God and each other to prepare for receiving Jesus in the Eucharist. What a gift we as Catholics have in the sacraments! We hope we are assisting you in a positive way as you parent the faith to your children.
The Sacrament books used during the 2016-2017 school year was “Reconciliation” and “Eucharist” published by RCL Benzinger. Each chapter of the book has a family component that we encouraged 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.”
What a beautiful First Communion!
Thank-you to EVERYONE who made it a special time! And thank you to all of our parents and catechists who helped our children under- stand the specialness of receiving Eucharist.
