Welcome to Sacramental Preparation for the Sacraments of
First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion at
Saint Thomas Aquinas Catholic Parish!
It is a privilege to join you
on this part of your child's and family's faith journey.
“On the evening of that day, the first day of the week," Jesus showed himself to his apostles, "He breathed on them, and said to them: 'Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.'"
John 20:19, 22-23
Jesus said: "I am the living bread that came down from heaven;
if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever;
...he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life and
...abides in me, and I in him"
John 6:51, 54, 56
This is a joyous time as your child prepares to encounter Jesus in the Sacrament of Reconciliation and to receive Jesus in the Sacrament of Holy Communion for the first of many times. We are delighted to provide you with
opportunities to participate in this sacramental journey as well!
