Youth receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time are prepared through the PSR classes or with their classes at St. Francis Xavier School if they attend the day school. Both scenarios offer a family-centered program that includes attending one meeting of orientation and formation for each sacrament, workbooks that are completed together at home, and retreat days on parish grounds for the children.
Typically youth receive these sacraments during the second grade, but we are happy to accommodate children of any age. Youth are required to complete the Grade 1 program in the Parish School of Religion prior to receiving the sacrament.
