Grade 2 - First Reconciliation and First Communion

First Reconciliation:

Reconciliation is the sacrament through which the Catholic community through the ministry of a priest provides reconciliation both to God and to the Church. In less recent times it has been referred to as Penance or Confession. The sacrament follows a ritual of the penitent confessing one's sins to the priest and in a prayer expressing sorrow for those sins (Act of Contrition), then receiving forgiveness through the prayer of absolution administered by the priest.

Notre Dame School Second Graders receive the same preparation in their classes at the school as Religious Formation children receive during their Sunday class periods. The students and/or parents are to attend the following functions below for the parish to which they belong. Students making their First Reconciliation from Notre Dame School or Religious Formation classes are to attend their home parish to make their confessions on the dates and times indicated below.

Grade 2 - First Communion:

Eucharist is the sacramental celebration of the Paschal Mystery (i.e., Christ's dying and rising for humankind) in praise and thanksgiving for all that God has done and continues to do. During the Eucharist the gifts of bread and wine are consecrated to become the body and blood of Christ. First Communion is the first Eucharist in which the new Communicants fully participate in the Mass.

Notre Dame School Second Graders receive the same preparation in their classes at the school as Religious Formation children receive during their Sunday class periods. The Religious Formation students and/or parents are to attend the following functions below for the parish to which they belong.
