First Reconciliation Preparation

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a sacrament of love, healing, forgiveness, and growth.  It is an important foundation to a person’s ongoing faith journey.  The sacrament helps us to be intentional in our choices to live as loving Disciples of Jesus.  And, when we fall short, this sacrament gives us an opportunity to experience God’s boundless love and mercy.  

In the Archdiocese of Seattle, children are required to be prepared for their First Reconciliation before they can prepare for their First Eucharist.  That is why here, at Mary, Queen of Peace, we begin with preparation for First Reconciliation in the fall with 4 - large group sessions that are offered once a month beginning in September and ending in December. These sessions provide parents and their child an opportunity to gather to make new friends, deepen their appreciation of God’s love and mercy and grow in their knowledge of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  In addition, families will receive resources to work with at home. Families will be invited to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation in January.  There is no “automatic” age or grade level for the reception of this sacrament but you must be at least 7 years of age. Feel free to contact me if you have questions.  Jennie Caldwell at 425-391-1178, ext. 116 or children.family@mqp.org.
