- First Penance and First Eucharist is a two year process. Children complete Grades 1 & 2 in one of our four options, and during 2nd grade there is an immediate family based preparation program guided by the Religious Education Office. For First Eucharist parents can either work with their child individually at home to complete the lessons or they can attend the three Large Group instructional sessions with their child that are offered by the Religious Education Office.
If your child older than the 2nd grade year and has not received any of the following sacraments (Baptism, First Penance, First Communion) please contact our office at 201-444-0211. Each year we offer a preparation course that the child/parent will participate in along with their regular religious education classes.
