First Reconciliation & First Communion

First Reconciliation & First Communion

Sacramental Preparation is the process of preparing children 2nd grade or older for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. Only children who have been baptized participate in Sacramental Preparation. If you have a child who is not yet baptized, and over the age of 7, please visit our RCIA page.

At St. Michael Parish, baptized children who have attained the age of reason (age 7 or second grade) who is educated in their faith may begin preparation for their First Reconciliation and First Eucharist may begin immediate preparation for their First Eucharist. Immediate preparation presumes remote preparation was accomplished in the prior year(s). This requires that a child must have a previous year of Faith Formation or attend a Catholic School.

Immediate preparation for the sacraments begins in the Fall with the sacrament of Reconciliation and progresses toward Eucharist in the following months.

To sign up your child for Sacramental Preparation, contact Elizabeth Lyons at  or call (360) 292-7119.
