Sacramental Preparation is the process of preparing children 2nd grade or older for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. Only children who have been baptized participate in Sacramental Preparation. If you have a child who is not yet baptized, and over the age of 7, please refer to our Sacrament Guidelines.
At Our Lady of Fatima Parish, baptized children who have attained the age of reason (age 7 or second grade) who is educated in their faith may begin preparation for their First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. Immediate preparation presumes preparation was accomplished in the prior year(s). This requires that a child must have a previous year of Faith Formation or attend a Catholic School.
