First Reconciliation

MPB 2nd Graders (Parish and School)

The Faith Formation Team is updating our programs for the 2017-18 school year. If you would like to get a feel for our programs, please peruse our webpages. Please check back after July 1, 2017 for updated information and registration links for Sacramental Preparation (First Reconciliation, Restored Order of First Eucharist/Confirmation and Confirmation), our FAITH Religious Ed Program, and Family Service Sundays.

During the year of preparation, families must be enrolled in the FAITH program OR at Most Precious Blood Catholic School AND participate in an additional program to exclusively prepare for First Reconciliation.

As the primary educators of their children, parents, with the support of the pastor and the Faith Formation team, are responsible for preparing their children for this sacrament. There is one parent training meeting held in January to help with preparation.

Throughout the year, parents and students participate in a series of celebrations called ‘Rites.’ These obligatory ‘Rites’ are the Rite of Belonging and the Rite of First Reconciliation. These Rites underscore the significance of the sacraments in deepening the faith of the children.
