Preparation for First Eucharist and First Reconciliation at the Church of St. John the Evangelist is accomplished through a combination of Faith Formation instruction either at the Parochial school that your child attends or on Wednesday nights through St. John’s, and parish preparation sessions. First Reconciliation is received prior to First Eucharist. Children celebrate these sacraments 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.
