First Eucharist and Reconciliation
During students’ 2nd grade year, they prepare for the sacraments of First Eucharist and First Reconciliation. To help support the students and parents along this journey, in addition to receiving religious education in their Catholic school or in the Christian Formation program, St. Matthias offers additional sacrament preparation classes.
These additional classes help students to focus solely on the given sacrament. In each class, students and parents are given a workbook that is to be completed as a team, with parents helping to guide their children along the path to each sacrament.
Calendars and registration forms can be downloaded through our Faith Formation Forms page. Registrations for First Eucharist and the requesting of masses is on a first come, first serve basis.
Finally, no family, parent or child will be turned away from our Formation programs because of financial constraints. If you are in need of financial assistance to help cover the cost of registration in any of our programs, please complete the application for Endowment. Please turn in the form along with the registration form and a member of our staff will contact you.
