First Eucharist and Reconciliation

Children of the parish generally receive First Eucharist in the spring of second grade.  Most of the preparation takes place in the school classroom (for children enrolled at Christ the King school) or the Religious Education classroom (for children not enrolled at Christ the King school).  Therefore, all children preparing for First Communion must be enrolled in the parish school or the parish religious education program.

Children will make their first reconciliation at a parish service prior to First Communion, and children will also participate in a day-long retreat the week before they make their First Communion.
