First Reconciliation 2022
First Reconciliation is a wonderful sacrament! While all of our sins are wiped away in Baptism, we are only baptized once. There are many situations in which we find ourselves in need of being restored to a state of grace. Your child will be receiving the sacrament of Reconciliation this fall, ahead of making their First Communion next spring. There are a few important dates to mark!
Light of Christ mini-retreat - Saturday, October 8, 2022
This retreat is centered around renewal of the Baptismal promises. Since many of us were too young to remember our baptism and make the promises for ourselves, we will renew our baptismal promises, learn about the Church that we are members of, and learn how we as individuals make the body of Christ. We will meet from 9:00am to 10:30am on Saturday, October 8th. Please bring your child to the Church basement at 9am. Parents are welcome to stay, but not required to do so. You will be able to pick them up in the Church at 10:30am. This will replace SOR on Sunday, October 9th.
Parent Meeting - Sunday, October 9th, 2022
Parents (children are welcome as well) are required to join Fr. Bill Bruning, pastor, and Grace Trainor, DRE, for a brief meeting about the sacrament of Reconciliation, and an explanation of the preparation their children will be receiving. This meeting will occur during the regular SOR time, from 10:15am to 11:00am. Join us for opening prayer with SOR, then have a seat in the JPII Cafeteria!
First Confession - Thursday, November 17th, 2022 at 7 pm
Children will receive the sacrament of Reconciliation on Thursday, November 17th at 7 pm. More details to come.
