We strongly encourage all parents to bring their children to weekly mass as it is an important part of their sacramental preparation. Children must understand the mass in order to understand what it means to take receive Holy Communion. Additionally, home preparation with prayer, bible stories and discussion along with school based religion curriculum will combine to inform and prepare children for these special sacraments.
The sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion are traditionally celebrated in Grade 2. The Catholic Church believes that by the age of 7 most children are capable of understanding the importance of reconciliation with God and are ready to receive the Eucharist.
