FIRST COMMUNION - Things to Learn, Part III

For the month of January, we are assigning the third set of concepts for your child to go over and learn.  Your child will need to learn the steps in the Rite of Reconciliation, as found in their “Reconciliation Book” given to them this week in class.  Your child will be doing their First Confession (Reconciliation) before receiving their First Communion.  They will be expected to know what to say and do when they celebrate Reconciliation for the first time with one of our parish priests.  Therefore, it is of utmost importance that they know the steps in celebrating Reconciliation.  Your child also needs to review the Act of Contrition, as they will say this prayer during Reconciliation.
We sent home a handout with your child this past week with what they need to review and learn.  *You can download the handout by
clicking here, and it is also available on the “First Communion Page” of our website.
In a couple of weeks, we will be evaluating to ensure that your child has learned the Rite of Reconciliation and the Act of Contrition.  We ask for your assistance by going over the Rite and the prayer together with your child.  We also recommend practicing the steps in celebrating Reconciliation with your child at home.
Thank you, and God bless you.
