Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained. John 20:23

First Reconciliation

Students can prepare to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation at home, or by attending a class.  To attend in person, please complete the online registration form and paper forms.    The class for students and their parents meets on Tuesdays during the school year from 4:30pm – 5:45pm in the Parish Hall (please consult the calendar link for specific dates).  The class uses some of the lessons of the Our Lady of the Rosary Curriculum (found below) to meet the Archdiocesan objectives for preparing for the sacrament.   Also below, is a link to the notebook which outlines which lessons to study.

A First Reconciliation retreat will be held for families in the spring along with interviews with our priest where students and their families can demonstrate that they are ready to receive this sacrament.   Once a student passes their interview, they can receive the sacrament at any confession time at any Catholic parish.

Resources to help you prepare for the sacrament include:

  1. First Reconciliation Notebook
  2. Our Lady of the Rosary Family Catechism   
  3. Our Lady of the Rosary Information Packet
