The sacrament of Reconciliation is a gift that celebrates and affirms the immeasurable and everlasting love and forgiveness of God. The loving-kindness and faithfulness of our Lord provides the backdrop and framework in which we are invited to examine our lives, confess our weaknesses and sins, and be assured of the ongoing love and presence of God in our lives through the Church's absolution.
Preparations for First Reconciliation are done when children are in the early primary grades. Parents are invited to enroll their children in the preparation process when they feel they are ready for the sacrament. Preparations for First Reconciliation are to precede preparation for First Communion.
The process of preparation takes place in both the parish community and home, and consists of parent meetings, parent/child meetings, and home-based materials. Children should be enrolled in either the school or Generations of Faith and should be regular participants in the life of the faith community.
