First Reconciliation/First Communion
Parents are the primary educators of their children, so they are actively involved in preparing their children for First Reconciliation and First Communion. The Religious Education Office offers parent sessions before First Reconciliation and First Communion as well as parent/child learning centers. Students involved in this program typically are in second grade.
Call the Religious Ed Office at (320) 763-9202 for details.
