First Communion & Reconciliation
1st Communion Preparation
Elizabeth Post, Staff
Preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion is a two year process beginning in first grade. Students receive the Sacraments toward the end of their second grade year. We work with each family to ensure that their child is ready for such an important step in their faith journey, including those who missed preparation in first grade, those who are older, and those not yet baptized.
Please contact the Formation Office for more information.
The Sacrament Preparation process at St. Pius X Parish includes four primary areas:
- Faith Formation
- Required Parent/Child Retreats (second grade and above)
- Parent’s Faith Growth
- Support at Home
First Reconciliation service takes place during the Lenten Season, and the First Communion Mass is held during the Easter Season.
