First Communion/First Reconciliation

As of 2018 and per new Diocesan directives, the preparation of First Eucharist and First Reconciliation is now combined in the same school year. Students must be baptized and be in grade 2 or higher.

Parent Information Session and Registration Day is Sunday, September 15 at 2:00pm in the parish hall.   Please bring a copy of your child’s baptism certificate if he/she was not baptized at St. James and registration fee.    Cost for classes is $50 to cover materials.  Fees may be waived for families in need.  Classes will take place on Saturdays from 2:00-3:30pm as per class schedule.

As the preparation program is a parent/child program, a parent or guardian is required to attend each session with the child.  Missed classes are to be completed at other parishes as coordinated by the parish office.

*Children who have already received First Communion but still require First Reconciliation will attend only the first half of the program.
