Sacraments Children in Kindergarten through Grade Six are prepared for Baptism, First Reconciliation (Penance) and First Communion(Eucharist). Parents with children for Baptism must contact the Parish Office first. Preparation for and celebration of First Reconciliation and Eucharist is a two year process. These sacraments take place no earlier than Second Grade if the child has attended First Grade. Preparation takes place through Holy Cross School, Religious Education Afternoon Classes and in the Families Growing in Faith Together sessions.
