First Eucharist and Reconciliation

The rite of reconciliation, often called "confession" is the sacrament in which Christ forgives our sins and reconciles us to our fellow Christians. Its sign or ceremony is the sinner"s showing his sorrow by acknowledging his sins and the priest"s words of forgiveness and reconciliation in Christ"s name. The Rite of Reconciliation can be celebrated any time, please call the church office for an appointment or refer to the weekly bulletin for a scheduled time. Christ"s presence among us in the Eucharist (Holy Communion) has always been a key teaching of the Catholic faith. It has been the constant teaching of the Church from the beginning; the clear belief found in early Christian documents is overwhelming. Through bread and wine Christ becomes present in the Eucharistic celebration; somehow Christ himself is now truly present under this form of food as St. Paul says succinctly. (1 Corinthians 11, 27-30) Usually First Eucharist is celebrated in the Second grade.
