Reconciliation | First Communion
Prior to receiving First Communion, children must receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as Penance, or confession). First Communicants should already be baptized in the Catholic Church and their families should be registered members of our parish and attend Mass here every week.
Parents of children receiving Reconciliation for the first time should also join our Faith Formation Program, which helps children understand and appreciate God’s forgiveness. For more information please call the Church Office at 201-434-0798.
If your child is receiving First Communion, please join our Family Faith Program, which helps children understand and appreciate their Catholic faith and the Eucharist itself. Please call the Church Office at 201-434-0798 for details.
At OLC, children normally receive their First Communion in the second grade.
