Sacraments: First Reconciliation/First Communion

Sacramental Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Communion at St. Patrick is done as family catechesis with presentations to the parents & children on Saturday mornings to help the family at home. As first teachers of the faith, we invite you to walk with your children as they prepare for the sacraments. It states in Lumen Gentium from the Second Vatican Council that, "The family is, so to speak, the domestic church. In it parents should, by their word and example, be the first preachers of the faith to their children."

Children who are eligible will receive an invitation and registration letter prior to sacramental preparation. If you are new to the parish, or have not received an invitation, or have any questions or concerns, please call the R.E. office.

Please see the parent and children meetings and dates for the sacraments and eligibility below:


Children who are eligible to participate in First Reconciliation preparation have been baptized, had 2 years, or are in their 2nd year or religious education, and weekly attendance at Holy Mass. A Sacrament fee of $10 is due at the time of registration for 1st Reconciliation.
