Children normally make their First Reconciliation in second grade prior to their first Holy Communion.
Preparation begins with an understanding of making good choices and bad choices, then saying “I’m sorry.” for
bad choices (sin.) The catechists will prepare the children for the sacrament, along with the parish priests.
Children will participate in the sacrament of
Reconciliation annually with their REP groups during the Lenten
season through Grade 8.
Preparation for Reconciliation is ongoing in our religion classes.
In Grade 5, special attention is given to emphasize the concept of
God's healing love and forgiveness.
