First Communion has traditionally been celebrated during the second grade; however, in accordance with the Archdiocese of Denver’s Saints Among Us program, Most Precious Blood is working toward the Restored Order of the Sacraments of Initiation. If you would like to learn more about the Archdiocese of Denver’s Restored Order program, click here.

In Restored Order, the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Communion are celebrated during a child’s 3rd grade year. During the 2nd grade year, children prepare for and celebrate the Sacrament of First Reconciliation.

During the 2017-2018 school year, MPB’s 3rd graders will celebrate the Restored Order of the Sacraments of Initiation.  Third graders will prepare for and receive the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Communion in the Spring of 2018.  To learn more about the sacramental preparation process for 3rd Graders wishing to celebrate the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Communion, click here.
