Children age seven and older are invited to experience the love and forgiveness of Christ offered through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Children reach the age of reason at or around age seven, when they become able to determine the morality of their choices. Discernment on the part of the parent or guardian is necessary to determine when a particular child might be ready. For those students attending the second grade at St. Francis of Assisi, preparation for this Sacrament will take place in the second grade. For all other children, preparation is incorporated into the classes readying them for First Holy Communion.
