First Eucharist and Reconciliation
The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. (CCC 1324)
A Family Experience
Preparing our children for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion is a spiritual, family experience. Through the preparation process, participants will grow in their sense of community, deepen their understanding of the sacramental rites, and express their understanding in a faithful response. It is a chance for parents and siblings to grow and deepen faith.
Sacraments of Belonging
These “first” sacraments are celebrated with the faith community in which the entire family worships and belongs so that it is a catalyst for a family to more deeply connect with their parish, nurture their involvement, and establish relationships with other parish families and households that will be sustaining for the whole family in the years after the celebration of a sacrament.
