First Reconciliation is celebrated as a communal rite from 6:30 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, November 13, 2019.
Families also have the option to fulfill Reconciliation on their own from 4 to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays in Church or by appointment with Father Jeff Shooner or Father Steven Reeves. Reconciliation schedules can vary during Advent; therefore, please refer to the parish website or call the parish office for questions regarding schedules.
Second graders in St. Patrick’s Parish Religious Education Program (PREP) will use “Blessed” by Dynamic Catholic. Lessons will be fulfilled through a partnership between parents and the PREP catechist.
Second graders in St. Patrick School will use an overall religious education curriculum entitled “Blest Are We”. They will also use “Blessed” for Reconciliation and Holy Communion catechesis.
All School and PREP parents of second graders are expected to attend one parent only meeting and one parent-child workshops in preparation for the sacrament. The workshop will utilize stories and activities to review content about the sacrament and rehearse with the children. Childcare for siblings is provided for the parent-child workshops. Contact Tammy Kessler, Children’s Formation Coordinator, with questions about arranging childcare.
