Children in the second grade are prepared for the reception of the First Penance and First Communion through Parish School Religion (PSR) program.
At least one parent of each child preparing to receive First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion this year is required to attend a session on each of these sacraments as scheduled by the Director of Religious Education.
First Reconciliation & First Holy Communion
The families of the 2nd graders have been working hard to prepare for the children’s first Reconciliation at the Penance Service on December 1. After that, the kids will shift focus towards preparing for their first Holy Communion in learning about the Mass, the Eucharist, and the relationship God desires with them. This year, we have undertaken a ‘hybrid’ structure of classes, in which material is covered in the classroom and then material is sent home so that the families can journey together in preparing for the Sacrament. We are hopeful that this structure will prove beneficial for the kids, the families, and the Assumption community.
