First Reconcilation/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 pray for our second graders from SJS, PRE and home schools.   The children will receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time on Saturday, December 2 at 9:30 am at SJ and 11:15 at SEA.   Children and their families should attend their home parish for the Sacrament.

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.
