First Communion & Reconciliation

1st Communion Preparation

Preparation for the Sacraments of First Communion and Reconciliation usually take place in our second-grade Faith Formation classes. Families with older children who would like to prepare for the Sacraments are welcome as well. Please contact the Formation Office for more information.

The Sacrament Preparation process at St. Pius X Parish includes four primary areas:

  • Faith Formation Programs
  • Family Retreats
  • Parent’s Faith Growth
  • Follow-Up and Continued Support at Home

First Reconciliation service takes place during the Lenten Season, and the First Communions Mass is held during the Easter Season.
