First Reconciliation and First Eucharist
Before students can receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist in the 2nd grade, they must receive religious instruction in the 1st grade, either in a Catholic school or in a PSR program, and be enrolled for 2nd grade. Be sure that your child attends religion class if you want them to receive the sacraments.
If you are a parishioner of St. Jude and your 2nd grade child attends Catholic school or PSR outside of St. Jude Parish, please contact our parish office if you have not done so for information regarding First Reconciliation & Eucharist. According to Diocesan Guideline, sacramental preparation for parents and their children's celebration of these sacraments must take place in the parish in which you are registered and worship.
