In the Sacrament of Reconciliation we find God’s unconditional forgiveness, and as a result we are called to forgive others.
General confession times: Saturday 2:30 p.m. or by appointment.
We offer preparation for First Reconciliation twice per school year,
one starting in September and one starting in January.
To prepare for a Sacramental Celebration there needs to be a foundational understanding of our Catholic faith; St. Pius X Church invite each person to participate with at least one year of Faith Formation or Catholic School the year immediately prior to the year she/he prepares for a sacramental celebration.
The preparation to celebrate First Reconciliation is done separately from the regular catechetical programs that the child is enrolled in, either in one of our Faith Formation Programs or as a student at St. Pius X Catholic School.
Criteria of Readiness to Prepare for and Celebrate First Reconciliation:
We will offer preparation both in the Fall and in the Winter
Each preparation begins with a parent meeting,
followed by lessons at home, 2 mini-retreats for candidate
(and at least one parent).
Registration for Fall Preparation will be accessible here in Mid-August 2023.
