Each year registered and participating families with children in second grade or older are gathered together to prepare for the celebration of Reconciliation (usually in the late Fall) and First Eucharist (in the Spring). Preparation includes family reflection sessions as well as parent discussion of faith sharing in the family. Diocesan guidelines also note that candidates for these sacraments must have received at least one full year of religious education in a Catholic School or Parish School of Religion before becoming a candidate.
