God’s forgiving, healing love helps us to grow and become sharers in the ministry of reconciliation. Reconciliation is a reminder to all of us that God loves us no matter what.
Reconciliation is available for all members of our parish community on Saturdays at 3:30.
As Christian parents, we lay the foundation of this ministry by giving unconditional love, forgiveness and reconciliation to our children. And as our children experience this in our care, they begin to glimpse the true nature of the love of God and the promise of lasting peace and happiness, which is God’s promise to us.
Preparation for First Reconciliation at the Church of St. John the Evangelist is accomplished through a combination of home and parish preparation sessions. First Reconciliation is received prior to First Eucharist. Children celebrate the sacrament when the parents, child, and sacramental coordinator feel the child is ready. This usually occurs in the fall of the second grade.
In order to receive this sacrament, each student needs to be registered with the Faith Formation office. Both public and Catholic school children need to be registered in the parish in order to receive this sacrament through the parish.
