FIRST RECONCILIATION / FIRST EUCHARIST Children prepare for these two Sacraments beginning in January. Children meet with a catechist and parents. It is expected that parents participate in the religious formation of their children during this time.
Classes for reconciliation take approximately six weeks with First Reconciliation taking place during Lent. Classes for Eucharist take place during Lent and the celebration of First Eucharist takes place during the Easter season. Parents who request preparation classes for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist must be registered at the Newman Center for 6 months prior to the start of classes.
