At Our Lady of Grace Parish, we celebrate First Reconciliation, Confirmation and First Holy Communion in the 2nd grade. Receiving a Sacrament for the first time is an incredible event that calls for an extra measure of prayer and preparation.
This is a very busy year for our 2nd graders and their parents. We highly encourage attendance in our Faith Formation program. In addition the children along with their parents and sponsors (if possible) will be required to attend 4 Sacrament Prep evenings. During the Prep-evenings, children and parents/guardians will work together to creatively and reverently understand more profoundly these beautiful sacraments, while at the same time preparing for what to expect when they celebrate and receive the sacraments.
