First Reconciliation at St. Andrew's Newman Center for Children
Although Baptism takes away Original Sin, human nature's inclination to evil persists. Forgiveness of our sins is a necessity for every person who wishes to grow in their spiritual connection with Christ. A positive confession experience hinges on a person's mindset. We must return to God, like the prodigal son, and acknowledge our sins with true sorrow.
At St. Andrew's Newman Center, children prepare for the reception of this sacrament in the second grade. A letter is sent to parents of second graders in the fall with more information about preparing for this Sacrament.
