As per new Diocesan directives, the preparation of First Eucharist and First Reconciliation will be combined beginning in 2018. Students must be baptized and be in grade 2 or higher. First Communion Celebration is Sunday, March 13, 2020 at 10:00am.
Parent Information Session and Registration Date 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 Sundays at 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. See below for class schedule.
*Children who have already received First Communion but still require First Reconciliation will attend only the first half of the program.
