GETTING READY TO ENCOUNTER JESUS!
The Sacraments of First Reconciliation & First Communion
Welcome to the Sacrament Preparation Process for St. Robert Bellarmine Parish! As a family with a child entering their formal years of faith formation you all are embarking on a journey in which your family will encounter Jesus Christ, our Savior in a real way and develop a deep friendship that will last a lifetime.
Preparing to receive a sacrament is a process with three essential components:
- LIVING FAITH through your family life at home;
- LEARNING FAITH through parish formation opportunities;
- LOVING FAITH through worshipping and serving with the parish family
This process begins with the Sacrament of Baptism and continues throughout our lives. s As your child begins their elementary school year they should also begin to expand their understanding of our Catholic faith. Once a solid foundation in faith understanding is established preparation to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Communion may begin.
