First Reconciliation and First Eucharist

When does my child prepare?

Children at St. Edward Parish prepare for and receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist for the first time during their second grade year. 

Who may participate?

Before a child is eligible to begin preparations to celebrate these sacraments, the child must be enrolled in and attend one year of Faith Formation classes.  

When does it happen?

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is usually celebrated in November and First Communion usually takes place in May.
