Preparation to Receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation
The preparation for children to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time takes place in the fall (September to December). Children must be at least in the 2nd grade and have one year of Religious Education immediately prior to beginning the preparation. Parent meetings take place to acquaint them with the materials used, process and procedure of preparation. The first reception of the sacrament takes place during our Parish Advent communal Penance Service. For more information please contact our Director of Religious Education, Sr. Valenta Rusin, at 301-271-4099 or Valentafssj@aol.com.
