Preparation for reception of reconciliation takes place in the fall of the second grade year. It is emphasized again during fourth grade. The Sacrament is available most Saturdays before the 6:00 p.m. Mass or by appointment.

Usual preparation for First Eucharist takes place during the second grade year and is most often received in the Easter Season. A year of Catechetical preparation or equivalent is required before admittance to second grade PSR.

Both Reconciliation and Eucharist are family programs done in conjunction with catechists and the coordinator of religious education. For more information please contact Tracey Kreipe, CRE at (217) 324-2776 or
