Reconciliation

St. Martin de Porres Parish invites children in Grade 2 & up to prepare for the sacrament of Reconciliation.

Classes for completion of a child's sacraments of initiation (which started at their Baptism) begin with the celebration of Reconciliation this Fall and then continues in the new year with Confirmation and 1st Eucharist.

Preparation for these sacraments is an important step in your child's spiritual journey. The classes are structured so that parents work with their child under the guidance of the facilitator. We help parents pass our faith on to their children in a way that we hope will last a lifetime.

Registration forms are available here, at the parish office, or at both entrances to the church. The cost for First Reconciliation is $30. Please return the form and fee to the school or church office by Tuesday, October 12. Make cheques payable to St. Martin de Porres.
