Parent Handout:  What to Expect at Your Child's First Reconciliation

One of the most powerful ways we impart our Faith to our children is through living by example and as active participants in their Faith formation.  It is our hope and prayer that you are talking about and encouraging preparation for the Sacrament of Reconciliation in addition to the weekly Religious Education classes.  We invite you to work with your child on a routine basis over the Christmas holiday break so that they will be well prepared for their First Penance.
