There is a mandatory Reconciliation Retreat on January 13, 2024, from 8:30-2:00 pm. Every child or youth in 2nd – 12th grades who will receive their First Communion is required to attend. In addition, a parent or other adult must attend with the child.
Please complete a registration form for each child so we know which children and adults will be in attendance. One adult can come with multiple children. We will send registration forms home with children on January 3rd. Please return your form by January 10th. -OR- You may complete your registration online by clicking below:
There are two required retreats in preparation for First Reconciliation and First Communion. Attendance is required for both parents and students. These retreats are meant to provide spiritual, catechetical, and personal formation for you as parents and for your children as they prepare for the sacraments. At least one parent must be in attendance. Students and parents must complete the entire retreat. Failure to attend retreats may prevent your child from receiving the sacraments.
We understand that not all parents may be able to attend retreats due to work or other conflicts. There are two makeup options available.
Alternate Adult. A trusted adult, such as a grandparent or aunt/uncle, may attend with your child in your place.
Makeup Sessions. The parent portion may be made up by attending three 2-hour makeup sessions as scheduled by the program director. The student portion may be made up by completing an at-home activity packet. Parents will be responsible for helping their children complete the packet.
We highly encourage parents to make these retreats a priority.
