The greatest gift which God the Father can give to anyone, including children, is faith in his only begotten Son. Jesus declared that the Father reveals his Son to children more readily than to the learned and clever (cf. Lk 10:21; Mt 11:25).
Recalling these examples of Jesus’ attention to children sets the proper context for helping children examine the conscience and preparing them for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. This sacrament allows Jesus to express his love for children today. Second graders make their Reconciliation in December. Fifth graders will have an opportunity during the school year to receive this Sacrament as well.
Reconciliation for First Communion Students (Grade 2):
Saturday, December 9, from 10:00 to 11:30 in the parish hall.
The morning will begin with activities for a parent and their 2nd grader that center around the Good Shepherd and the lost sheep, right and wrong actions and “How to go to Confession.” At 11:00 the children will go to confession for the first time.
GRADE 5: Will receive Reconciliation at the beginning of March during class time.
