First Reconciliation and First Communion

First Reconciliation and First Communion

Welcome to St. Maurice Parish sacramental preparation program!

This year is one of preparation for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion.

We prepare together to come before the mercy of the Lord in First Reconciliation, and to receive God truly present in the Holy Eucharist at the Mass.

Policies and Expectations

One parent/legal guardian attends class at the same time as the child. This helps you to strengthen in the understanding of the faith, help lead your child in the class content, and grow as a family of faith. Two absences are permitted, but more than that will require a possible meeting with the Pastor and make up work. Routine make up lessons are not available. Failure to attend these classes as a family, may result in a delay of the reception of the sacraments.
