The whole Church, as a priestly people, acts in different ways in the work of reconciliation that has been entrusted to it by the Lord.
--Rites of the Catholic Church
PREPARATION FOR THE SACRAMENT
Becuse parents are their children's primary teachers of the Faith, the example of parents is vital in the preparation of a child for every sacrament, including the sacrament of Reconciliation. Additional catechesis (faith formation) is provided by Parish Religious Education sessions and St. Robert School. Immediate preparation for the sacrament, however, will take place through a parent-student orientation session and home study.
• a parent-child session on September 24 at 6:30 pm
• parent-student home study
CELEBRATION OF THE SACRAMENT
...will take place on Saturday, November 14 at 9:00 am, in church. Reconciliation is offered throughout the year on Saturday afternoons from 3:30 - 4:00 pm in church.
