The First Reconciliation Retreat is this Saturday, October 13 from 9:30 am until 11:30 am. Children preparing for Reconciliation are expected to attend with one parent/guardian.

Parents will have their own opportunity for reflection and conversation on preparing their children for this sacrament.

Please be attentive and courteous while operating your vehicle in the parish parking lot as you drop-off and pick-up your child(ren).
Children will be given a daily snack break. We ask that you pack them something for each day. Please avoid sticky drinks, and plan on sending water.
Because this is an intensive program there is an expectation that the children will be in attendance every day and on time. If there is an emergency please contact the Office of Religious Education to make arrangements.
