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.
New this year, we are also requiring the parents to attend our Parents 2 sessions to help them more fully understand the faith so as to be able to share it with their children. These sessions will be held on the 2nd Sunday of each month while their child is in class. Videos and discussions will be based off the Dynamic Catholic Decision Point Program
