First Communion and First Reconciliation

Preparation for First Communion
Preparation for First Communion takes place during the 1st and 2nd Grades and is coordinated by our Director of Faith Formation. In addition to religious instruction at a Catholic elementary school or during regular PSR sessions, sacramental preparation will take place throughout the year, leading up to First Reconciliation January and First Holy Communion during the Easter Season.

Please check your email regularly!! Email will be the primary means of communicating with our First Communion Group!!

First Communion Update (9-17-2020):
The Sacramental Intent Form for First Reconciliation and First Communion 2021 was emailed to our PSR and our SJJ families on September 17th. A copy of the Sacramental Intent form is available here as well. You must return the form, the fee, and a copy of your child's Baptismal Certificate (unless the parish already has a copy on file) no later than October 15, 2020 to remain on our email communication list.

Suggested Dress for First Communion
For Boys: We ask that boys wear dress pants or school uniform pants (any color, usually black, navy blue or khaki); a dress shirt with a collar (long or short sleeved, any color) with a tie; and dress shoes (not sneakers or athletic shoes).
For Girls: We ask that girls wear a dress and dress shoes. That being said, most girls will wear a white dress (various lengths, all OK), with white shoes (watch the heels - they need to walk in them!) and something in their hair (veil, crown, wreath, bow).
We should not let the outfit overshadow the significance of the day.

     The Act of Contrition
     I am sorry for my sins with all my heart.
     In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you
          whom I should love above all things.
     I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more,
          and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.
     Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us.
     In his name, my God, have mercy.
