First Reconciliation & First Holy Communion


In the second grade children prepare for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. For the time leading up to these sacraments, preparation for them is the focus of religion classes.


It is our hope that the entire family will also share in the excitement of this special time in their children’s lives by talking about their daily lessons.


Non-Catholic students participate in sacramental preparation along with their classmates. Although they do not take part in the sacrament itself, they have also made a special journey with their families and friends and are encouraged to attend First Reconciliation and First Communion services to share in the community celebration.




Preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation is a two-year program spanning the 7th & 8th grade years. Confirmation takes place during a child's freshman year in high school.  Arrangement for Confirmation will be made through the Religious Education Department at St. Aloysius Parish .
