First Reconciliation Preparation
It is called the Sacrament of Reconciliation, because it imparts to the sinner the love of God who reconciles: "Be reconciled to God." He who lives by God's merciful love is ready to respond to the Lord's call: "Go; first be reconciled to your brother."
Preparation for the Sacrament of 1st Confession (Reconciliation) traditionally takes place in the 2nd Grade year of R.E. Classes. Preparation takes place during the Spring Semester of the 2nd Grade year. If a student enters R.E. classes after 2nd Grade, they can prepare during the 1st year of classes. (3rd, 4th or 5th Grade). Classes for 1st Confession are separate from R.E. classes and require the attendance of a parent, grandparent or Godparent with the child.
