First Reconciliation Preparation
(for children in 2nd Grade and older)
Families who wish to celebrate a sacrament must be registered members of St. Philip's and young people need to be enrolled and participating in a formation program or attending any Catholic school. Sacramental preparation is in addition to these programs.
Families with children in 2nd grade (and older) are invited to prepare for and celebrate First Reconciliation. Preparation for this sacrament consists of a required parent meeting, Learning Centers, and a retreat. Parents will receive information on the Sacrament and detailed descriptions of all events at the Parent Meeting October 3, 2010 or by contacting Karen Kulzer at the Faith Formation office. First Reconciliation celebrations occur in November/December.
Overview of the Sacrament of Reconciliation
It is important for us to reflect on the value of the Sacrament of Penance in our Catholic Tradition. The Sacrament of Confession is one of the greatest treasures of our Catholic faith.
Reconciliation is the sacramental way to receive God's forgiveness, and an Examination of Conscience is the proper way to prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Saturday afternoons, 4:30 p.m. in the Chapel
