Children are prepared in the Autumn to receive the sacrament of Reconciliation. This sacrament is usually celebrated during the Advent Communal Penance Service in December. In the later winter months, children begin their preparation to receive Holy Communion for the first time. Experienced catechists prepare the children for both sacraments. At the end of their preparation for First Communion, the students and their families participate in a "First Communion Retreat Day." For more information regarding preparation for these sacraments, please contact our Pastoral Associate, Jim Crosby, at 513-561-9431, ext. 113.
There will be a parent meeting for all parents who are interested in having their second grader (or older) participate in our First Reconciliation and First Eucharist classes on Wednesday, September 7, 2016 at 7:00 PM and Sunday, September 11, 2016 at 10:00 AM. You will need to attend only one meeting. The registration form, complete schedules and a letter are in the documents list to the right.
