Sacrament Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist

Typically, we prepare children for the Sacrament of Reconciliation in conjunction with preparation for the Sacrament of Eucharist in the second grade.

The preparing of children and parents for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Eucharist is a special opportunity for families to develop a deeper relationship with their faith and the community of OLOL.  The Sacrament Prep process requires that parents and children discuss what they believe and work together to learn what it means to receive and be part of the Body of Christ.  In learning about the faith and getting ready for these sacraments, the children and their families are exposed to numerous members of our parish community, as well as given an opportunity to live their faith outside of OLOL by preparing and serving a meal for people who are homeless.

Children and parents are also required to be enrolled in GIFT one year prior to second grade. Click here for more information on GIFT.
