First Eucharist

This is celebrated during Sunday Masses in the Easter Season. Enrollment in a year-long faith formation process is required. Preparation takes place primarily in the home with parent guidance, usually while a child is in the second grade. Parents may, however, elect to wait until a later age. Preparation includes two parent meetings, completion of a home study workbook, materials, a review session, a parent/child retreat experience, and a rehearsal.

**Childcare is available for young children upon prior request by calling the Parish Office at 952-890-0045.

First Reconciliation

Parents introduce their children to the Sacrament of Reconciliation at the same time as First Eucharist. Enrollment in a year-long faith formation process is required. A family-oriented preparation process is offered to assist parents with children in grade two and older. Preparation includes two parent sessions, completion of a home study workbook, and a parent/child retreat experience.

Reconciliation Celebrations: Celebrate this Sacrament any Saturday at 9:00 a.m. More opportunities for reconciliation are offered during Advent and Lent. Contact the Parish Office for those schedules, 952-890-0045.
