First Reconcilation/Communion

Meeting for 1st Graders and Parents

Mark your calendars! There will be a meeting for first graders and their parents on Sunday, January 7 at 2:00 p.m. in St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church. The meeting will be repeated on Tuesday, January 9 at 6:30 p.m. The topic is sharing faith at home, and considering the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion.

First Communion is usually celebrated after Easter for our second graders in the 5 day school, home schools and PRE Program.   

First Reconciliation is usually celebrated in December. God bless our second graders and their families who prepare for these important Sacraments diligently.  

Please have your child practice the Act of Contrition. Our students use an Act of Contrition written by St. John Paul II: It is a wonderful prayer to say at the end of the day.  If your child is not able to memorize the prayer, it would be very good if he/she could read it fluently.

My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong, and failing to do good, I have sinned against You whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior, Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In His name, my God have mercy.  Amen.
