Reconciliation and First Holy Communion

2022-2023 First Reconciliation and First Communion

We are so excited about preparing your child for their First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion!  Any child who has been baptized in the Catholic Church and is at least in 2nd grade is eligible to start preparing for these sacraments.

If your child is in 7th grade or higher and has not received First Holy Communion, or if your child was baptized in another faith, please contact Trista Minezes, because the preparation for these students to receive Holy Communion might be different. 
Class is held Sundays from 9:30 am -11:30 am at St. Clare (Includes Mass)
