When does it occur?

Reception of the Sacrament of Reconciliation ordinarily takes place during the 3rd and 4th grade. Special classes are held for parents to aid in preparation of the children for receiving this sacrament. 


Church law states that each child has the right to receive the sacrament when they judge (or their parents judge) they are ready. If parents choose an earlier year, we will accommodate that wish.


Times for the individual celebration of this sacrament (Rite I) are listed in the bulletin. Or you may call the parish office for an appointment. The communal celebration of this sacrament (Rite II) will be held during  Advent and Lent.
