Children’s Sacraments

First Communion and First Reconciliation

Normally a child celebrates these sacraments in the second grade. A year of PSR or Catholic school before second grade is needed, as well as regular attendance at PSR or Catholic school during the second grade year. We have four parent meetings, lessons with the parent and child at home, and two of the parent meetings include the child. Children should also be attending mass each weekend by first grade, and be baptized. The first meeting begins in September. Watch the Sunday bulletin for details, or call Iris at the parish office. If your child is older than second grade or is not baptized, contact one of the priests, or call Iris. It is never too late to begin! If your child is older, he/she will not attend classes with the second graders. An individualized program is set up based on the education level, time, and energy of the young person.

If either of these sacraments is needed, please don’t hesitate to contact Iris at the parish, (417)-831-3565 ext. 106.
