Reconciliation/First Holy Communion

  First Reconciliation/Confession and First Holy Communion/Eucharist in our parish are celebrated in the 2nd grade.

The preparation for the Sacrament of First Reconciliation at IHM begins in the second grade of CRE (prior to the preparation for First Holy Communion). The preparation program usually includes a Family Gathering and a Parent Gathering for those parents whose eldest child is receiving Reconciliation for the first time. The Sacrament of First Reconciliation is celebrated usually the first Friday evening in December.

The preparation for the Sacrament of First Holy Communion at IHM is also offered in the second grade of CRE. The preparation program includes a Family Gathering, a Parent Gathering for parents whose eldest child is receiving Eucharist for the first time, Song Rehearsal, and Rehearsal for the Celebration Day. The Sacrament of First Holy Communion is celebrated usually the first Saturday in May.
