1st Reconciliation/ 1st Eucharist
Preparation for First Reconciliation (Confession) and First Communion
Immediate preparation for First Eucharist and First Reconciliation is done on a parish-wide basis. This means that students from both the Religious Education program and the St. Roman Parish School will come together on selected Sunday’s mornings to prepare for these Sacraments. Students in second grade or older begin preparing for Reconciliation (First Confession) in September and will receive the Sacrament in December. They will then begin preparing for First Eucharist in January and will receive the Sacrament in early May. For children preparing for First Reconciliation and First Communion, students MUST have completed the first grade year or one year of an older grade of Religious Education before starting the year of immediate preparation for the Sacraments. This means that they will be completing their second year of Religious Education when they receive First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. This is an Archdiocesan requirement.
