First Reconciliation & First Communion

First Reconciliation

Our celebration of First Reconciliation takes place in November. Children prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation prior to the reception of First Eucharist by attending Faith Formation classes, working at home with their parents and attending a retreat prior to First Reconciliation. Children are eligible to prepare for the sacrament of Reconciliation when they have completed a full year of faith formation. 

 

First Eucharist

Blessed Teresa of Calcutta celebrated First Eucharist as a parish community at some of the regularly scheduled Sunday Masses during May.  Families are able to pick which mass works best for their schedule.The preparation for First Eucharist involves Faith Formation classes, work at home with parents, and parent/child workshops.  Children are eligible to prepare for 1st Eucharist when they have completed a full year of faith formation and have celebrated 1st Reconciliation.
