Retreat prepares Holy Cross kids for First Reconciliation

On Saturday, November 21, 32 children in our parish family enjoyed an afternoon retreat experience in final preparation for making their First Reconciliation next month.

Our children have been attending Mass regularly and working at home with their parents in preparation to receive the sacrament of reconciliation. Their retreat afternoon included discussing and role-playing all the necessary elements of reconciliation. It included a video, time for discussion and questions, banner making, and a prayer service where they received a necklace as a remembrance of their First Reconciliation.

Please keep our reconciliation candidates in prayer as they draw closer to their special day when they will experience the forgiveness and compassion of the Lord. They will be celebrating their First Reconciliation on December 2, at 7:00pm. It will be held within the context of our parish Advent Penance Service. We look forward to seeing you there!
