First Communion/Reconciliation


First Reconciliation and First Eucharist are a very special events in the life of a child, the child’s family, and the life of the entire Parish. We at Church of the Holy Spirit work with parents and children to make these two sacraments positive and memorable events for all participants.

Each fall we have a preparation sessions for the Sacrament of Reconciliation in our parish for parents as well as learning stations for Parents and their child. The sacrament is usually celebrated in January.

In the spring we have a preparation sessions for First Eucharist for parents as well learning centers for parents and children to go through together. First Eucharist is usually celebrated at the beginning of May.

A word about Worship

There is simply no substitute for regular active participation in the Mass. The documents of the Second Vatican Council refer to our celebration of the Eucharist as “the source and summit” of all that we do. The Mass calls us to be disciples of Jesus Christ, nourishes us for that task and then sends us forth to practice our faith in the coming week. We are never too young or too old to worship.
