First Sacraments

Sacrament of First Reconciliation and Sacrament of First Communion 

Students who want to receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Eucharist must be seven year of age and be baptized prior to receiving the sacraments. Parents are also asked to provide a copy of the student’s Baptismal Certificate before receiving the Sacrament of First Reconciliation. Students in second grade (Sacramental Preparation class) spend the year preparing to receive these sacraments.  If you have a child who is older than seven (second grade), we can discuss whether the child should join the second grade class, complete a home-study program, or work with a staff member or volunteer to complete a program.  

If you would like more information about First Reconciliation and First Holy Eucharist, please contact Marilyn Lessard, Director of Faith Formation, in the parish office (218-692-3731).
