Information will be provided regarding the procedure for in-person First Reconciliations and First Communion Masses during this COVID-19 period. Kindly login at least 5 minutes before the start of the meeting.

After the meeting, parents will be emailed a summary for their reference and in case they were unable to attend.

If you choose to defer your child's First Reconciliation due to COVID-19 concerns, then his or her First Communion will also be postponed until the next group of Grade 2 students receive their Sacraments (after Easter of 2022). The deadline to register for a First Reconciliation appointment is: Saturday, July 24. If you do not book an appointment by July 24, we will assume that you are deferring your child's First Reconciliation and First Communion to next year.

Each Confession is approximately 4 minutes long. Please bring your child's completed "Blessed First Reconciliation" and "Blessed First Communion" books. They will be reviewed AFTER your child's First Reconciliation before you leave the church.
