Preparation for First Reconciliation & First Eucharist


All second graders are expected to enroll in classes to prepare for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Eucharist. A copy of the child’s Baptismal certificate must be presented to the Faith Formation office.

Older children who have completed a full year of Faith Formation classes may also enroll in sacramental preparation.

Regular Mass attendance and participation is an important part of their preparation.

First Communion Procession


Children prepare for both Sacraments concurrently.  Preparation begins in early Fall in Faith Formation class.  All families with a student preparing for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist will come to an introductory Parent Meeting in January. Preparation continues with parent and child prayer services, liturgy and a Sacramental Retreat. 

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is completed approximately one month prior to First Eucharist. The Sacrament of First Eucharist is celebrated during the Easter season.

To enroll for sacramental preparation or for more information, please contact the Faith Formation Office at 248-625-1750 or download the registration form in the fall.  Be sure to check the appropriate area under “Sacramental Preparation” in addition to enrolling for a regular Faith Formation class.
