First Reconciliation/First Communion

First Reconciliation and First Communion are special events in the life of your child. St. Joseph Church works with parents to make these two Sacraments positive and memorable events. 

Sacramental Preparation for First Reconciliation is held in the Fall for children and their parents, with the Sacrament normally celebrated in January. 

Sacramental Preparation for First Communion is held after First Reconciliation for children and their parents, with the Sacrament of First Communion normally celebrated in April. 

Our curriculum has both a student and parent component. Parents are required to attend adult formation concurrently with their children's formation. Along with formation we offer two retreats per year. 

Sacramental Preparation classes are held on Wednesday evenings. See the Faith Formation tab for more information on Faith Formation classes.
