First Reconciliation & First Eucharist
“Jesus said, ‘I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.'” John 6:35
This program provides preparation for the first reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist for all children of St. Joseph/Old Mission San Jose, which includes both those attending public schools and St. Joseph School. This program is for children in 2nd grade and Grade 3 and up who didn’t receive these two sacraments when they were in the second grade.
Sacramental Preparation is a 2-year program and children attending must have been enrolled in the Family of Faith Ministry for at least one year before the preparation process.
During the second year, children will receive these two important Sacraments: First Reconciliation, which is celebrated sometime in February; First Holy Eucharist, which is usually celebrated on the weekends of May.
All children preparing for First Reconciliation and First Holy Eucharist must include a copy of their Baptismal Certificate with the registration form, suggested contribution, and an additional $150 Sacramental Preparation Fee.
