First Reconciliation & First Eucharist Program The First Reconciliation and First Communion sacrament preparation program is open to all children 2nd grade and older. The greatest preparation to receive the sacraments, and to help grow our faith, is to attend Sunday Mass regularly. We would also like the children to be enrolled and attend faith formation classes at Our Lady of the Black Hills. Parents are expected to lead their children in the sacrament preparation by using the child workbook and accompanying family guide that is provided by Our Lady of the Black Hills. In order to support families in the sacrament preparation of their children Our Lady of the Black Hills parents and children are asked to gather together for a Reconciliation Retreat, Eucharist Retreat, and a First Communion Practice Session. Please contact Constance McIver if you have questions. firstname.lastname@example.org or 787-5168.
2016 – 2017 First Reconciliation and First Eucharist Sacrament registration is part of the Faith Formation registration form and can be found on the Faith Formation webpage of OLBH.
