First Eucharist

 First Eucharist and Reconciliation Preparation

The Eucharist is a gift that is given to the child as they grow in their faith. Our Pflaum Gospel Weeklies “Together in Jesus” prepares the child to receive this gift through faith formation groups and retreats. First Reconciliation and First Communion normally happen in 2nd grade.  A child must have completed First grade faith formation or Catholic school with good attendance to be eligible for these sacraments.

First Communion will be made up of 3 classes plus a retreat.  (These will be in person unless pandemic restrictions force it to be on Zoom) Classes will be scheduled on weeknights in March and April.   A parent is expected to attend with their child.

First Reconciliation will be made up of 3 classes plus a retreat.  (These will be in person unless pandemic restrictions force it to be on Zoom) Classes will be scheduled on weeknights in January and February. A parent is expected to attend with their child.

First Reconciliations may be received on January 16, 23, and 30 in 2021. Or you may arrange for an appointment by calling the office 770-416-0002.

The children will be prepared to receive this sacrament through their Faith Formation group.

There is not a separate registration for this group, but you do need to express your interest in your faith formation registration.
