Grades 1-2 Sacramental Preparation

First Holy Communion and First Reconciliation


Director of Faith Formation, Grades 1-6
Marie Masaitis

First-grade students are introduced to the Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), God's plan of salvation, and our part in that plan. They also learn about Mary, the saints and basic Catholic prayers. Special emphasis is placed on growing to know, love and trust God.

Second-grade students prepare to receive the Sacraments of Penance and Holy Communion and come to an appreciation of God's love for them shown in these two Sacraments. The lessons emphasize God's mercy and love, the Ten Commandments, Redemption, Forgiveness, and the Mass.

Mass attendance is an important part of faith formation and Mass attendance is recorded. Two parent meetings and a parent/child retreat are held. The dates are noted on the calendar. First Communion dates are released in January.
