The students will prepare for First Reconciliation and First Communion this year. They will receive these sacraments later in the school year, but you can help your child by helping them prepare now by visiting Jesus weekly at Mass and participating.
In order to be fully prepared to receive the sacraments, this year your child will need to know the following prayers.
