First Reconciliation Retreat
November 15 @ 6:15 pm - 7:30 pm
One event on November 15, 2017 at 6:15pm
Children in Grade 2 and beyond are invited to prepare for and participate in the Sacrament of First Reconciliation. In line with Archdiocesan guidelines, First Reconciliation preparation is primarily home-based with several onsite activities and events for parents and student, and children need to participate in First Reconciliation before receiving First Eucharist. In addition, families are asked to be registered members of St. Stephen’s Church and to enroll the child in a grade 2 or beyond Faith Formation or Catholic day school program.
At the first parent meeting in September, parents receive a packet for home-based studies, including Reconciliation: Pardon and Peace by RCL Benziger and accompanying lesson plans, as well as other printed and online resources.
- First Reconciliation Retreat: November 14 or 15 at 6:15 p.m.
- Celebration of First Reconciliation: December 2 at 9:30 or 11:00 a.m.
It is highly recommended that children preparing for first sacraments in grade 2 attend either a grade 1 Faith Formation class or be enrolled in a Catholic school for grade 1. This helps provide a solid foundation for and helps keep the child in step with peers.
