First Reconciliation


Preparation for and celebration of First Reconciliation takes place usually in second grade.

The Catholic Church believes that parents are the first educators of their children. We who teach in the school or in Religious Education realize that the children will have a lesser opportunity to become adult Catholics unless it is lived in the home. Therefore, we provide materials for you to use in the home as well as some catechesis on the sacrament for your own better understanding in sharing that with your child. Please make every effort to attend a parent session before preparing your child to receive each one of these sacraments. We support and endorse all that you do. We do not teach from the materials supplied to the parents. Therefore, your child is not completely prepared if they do not complete the packet we give to you at the meetings. We are available to help in any way we can.

Parent sessions will be held in the St. Joseph Room. If a child older than second grade has not received this sacrament, please call Suzy Meinzenbach, Coordinator of Religious Education Coordinator & Sacramental Prep, Grades K -8; 913.338-4367 or [email protected]
