First Reconciliation & First Holy Communion
Children typically receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation of Holy Eucharist for the first time during their second grade year. They prepare for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion during religion classes at school. Preparation of these sacraments is the emphasis of their religion classes during the entire year. Non-Catholic students participate in sacramental preparation along with their classmates. Although they do not take part in the sacraments, they have also made a special journey with their families and friends and are encouraged to attend First Reconciliation and First Communion services to share in the community celebration.
Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation……Enrollment in this program is through the Religious Education Department at Our Lady of the Greenwood Parish.
