FIRST RECONCILIATION & HOLY COMMUNION

Reconciliation Retreat

Below are the resources shared during Sunday's retreat.

Details for Spring 2021

We are pleased to share Sacramental prep for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion for Grade 2 students of Ascension Parish.

The 2021 Sacramental Preparation will be threefold: weekly online lessons (for all grades), an in-person retreat, and an at-home study piece using the book “The New St. Joseph First Communion Catechism”. These books will be provided for each family with an accompanying letter that contains important talk points to use with your kids.

If you are not comfortable attending live sessions at this time, please know that all calendar events will be live-streamed on www.theascensionparish.com and the books can be made available for pick up.

We are so happy to be able to walk beside your families as your children take this important step in their faith journey! As always, if you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out to
