Every Second Counts

First Reconciliation/First Eucharist (Grade 2)

Second grade is a very important year in our children's sacramental life!  This original ministry brings children preparing for these Sacraments and their parents together for creative and interactive catechesis which serves as their Faith Formation for this year.  Special Welcome Orientation Sessions for the parent and child are in August.

What is the Commitment?  Parents are empowered to act as their child's first and primary educator of the Catholic Faith especially during this year of preparation, honoring the Baptismal promises parents made at their child's Baptism.  Parents make a commitment to help their child grow in their faith through prayer, acts of service, participation at Mass each week, participation in parish life, as well as taking time at home each week to study their Sacrament Books.

As a large group, BOTH parents (at least one) and the child preparing for the Sacrament, participate in the parish ministry EVERY SECOND COUNTS (on selected Wednesdays 6:00-7:00 pm) as well as parish-wide and faith formation yearly events.
