The current calendar for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist can be found at the bottom of this column.
We will hold 2nd Grade Parent Meetings each fall to discuss the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and in January or February to discuss First Eucharist details. We will also help Parent Meetings for families who speak only Spanish. Children should not attend. The CFF staff will provide information regarding the Catholic belief for Reconciliaiton and Eucharist, and basic information about upcoming events.
The Blessing Cup Workshop is held each year in February. Each child paints a Blessing Cup which we keep, take it to be fired, and present to each child at the First Eucharist Mass they attend. This event is not required,students can paint their cup at Glazed Expressions for a minimal sitting fee.
The First Eucharist Retreat is held each year early in March from 9 am until 12:15 pm in the parish center. We always will need many volunteers for the retreat. During this event, our students learn much about the sacrament they are about to receive.
