First Penance & First Communion

We offer two dates and times for preparation. They are not parish specific.  If needed, you can attend Option A for Penance preparation and Option B for Holy Communion preparation, or vise-versa. The actual Sacraments take place at your home parish.

A parent needs to attend all lessons with their child for both Penance and Holy Communion preparation classes.
