First Reconciliation and First Eucharist for Elementary Students
Our program for Elementary students preparing for the sacraments of First Reconciliation (also called Confession or Penance) and First Eucharist (also called First Communion) use the St. Mary’s Press curriculum Go, Seek, Find, which utilizes the Catholic Children’s Bible. This new curriculum debuted in Billerica Catholic Religious Education in the fall of 2016 and was very highly regarded by parents and students alike. It provides good opportunities for parents and their children to interact through the bible and prepares the children to receive God’s grace in the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.
Students in grades 1-5 may participate in the preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist during their second year of Religious Education. An initial year of religious education is essential to provide foundational faith formation before undertaking the additional preparation of preparation for these important sacraments.
