FIRST RECONCILIATION & FIRST COMMUNION
The Diocese requires a two-year preparation for children wishing to celebrate the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Eucharist. This preparation may be completed through enrollment in the School of Religious Education or Immaculate Conception School. Parents attend a series of meetings on the theology of the sacraments in general and specifically First Reconciliation and First Eucharist.

Parents are given practical suggestions on how to talk with their children about God, why it is necessary to attend Mass on Sunday, and how to share their faith with their children in age appropriate ways.

During the second year preparation the children celebrate the sacrament of Reconciliation during the Lenten season and their First Communion during the Easter Season. A First Communion Retreat day is scheduled for the children before the reception of the Eucharist.

For more information and to register, please stop by the Office or call 419∙734∙4004.

CELEBRATION OF CHRISTIAN FUNERALS
At the death of a loved one, kindly notify the Parish Office at 419∙734∙4004 at your earliest convenience so that the dates and times for the Funeral Liturgy may be arranged.
