Sacrament of First Reconciliation & First Eucharist

Sacrament of First Eucharist Holy Sacrifice, Lord’s Supper (Communion)

“Take this all of you and eat it. This is my body, which will be given up for you.  Take this, all of you, and drink it.  This is the cup of my blood.”

REGISTRATION IS COMBINED WITH FIRST RECONCILIATION.

Preparation for Holy Communion is now a combined program. Children will receive preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist in the same school year.

ALL CHILDREN RECEIVING THE SACRAMENT OF FIRST EUCHARIST MUST FIRST RECEIVE THE SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION.

If your child has already completed First Reconciliation, and only needs Sacrament of First Eucharist please wait for the online registration to begin at a later date.

WHO SHOULD REGISTER:

Children in grade 2 or higher who have received the sacrament of Baptism or Profession of Faith in the Roman Catholic Church.

Children preparing for First Communion now receive preparation beginning with the First Reconciliation program, then First Eucharist in the same school year.  The preparation for First Reconciliation is the first half of program and after the celebration of the Sacrament, we move onto First Eucharist in the new year.

Combined First Reconciliation and First Eucharist $50

First Reconciliation

Sacrament of Penance, Confession, or Forgiveness

Reconciliation; an encounter with God revealed by Jesus.  A journey toward Reconciliation that involves living a life as a follower of Jesus.

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN.

His Excellency Bishop McGrattan, Bishop of Calgary has brought the parishes of the Diocese together to offer a Sacramental Preparation Program that is consistent in form and content. This initiative is designed to assist the home, school and parish in nurturing the faith of your child as you prepare them for receiving the sacraments.

All of the Catholic parishes in the Calgary Diocese work closely with the school communities.  The Catholic schools provide Religious and Family Life Education for your child and the parishes provide the Sacramental Preparation Program for your child.  The 2020-2021 Sacramental Preparation Program will be home-based .

WHO SHOULD REGISTER:

Children in grade 2 now receive preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist (First Holy Communion) in the same school year. As this is a combined program, if your child has not received First Eucharist they must register for both sacraments.

HOW TO REGISTER:

To register, please fill out the online registration form and submit. Parents are asked to place in an envelope the filled-out form, the copy of the baptismal certificate, and the payment. Please drop envelope off in the main St. Paul’s parish office, thru the glass window, (first office on your left) Monday to Friday between 9am and 12 noon OR on weekends before Mass.
