Preparation takes place in Fall, and the sacrament is celebrated with our greater church community at the Advent Penance Service. Preparation for this sacrament of God’s healing forgiveness involves home and parent/child sessions separate from Faith Formation. When a child realizes the importance of forgiveness and understands that God’s love and absolution is always available, realizes their responsibility to do what is right, and grasps an understanding of their faith (appropriate to their age), the child is ready to receive the sacrament. Enrollment in Catholic School or a Faith Formation Program is required.
Parent/Child orientation will be Sunday September 24 at 11:45am!
First Penance is scheduled for Saturday December 9, 2017 at 11:00am!
More information coming!
