First Communion

Children prepare for First Communion and First Reconciliation when they are in the second grade.  Our focus is on the life and teaching of Jesus Christ, our Good Shepherd.

Participating families must be registered parishioners of St. Therese and are expected to attend Mass regularly, attend parent meetings, participate in at-home enrichment, and follow the program handbook.


Families with children in the third grade or older who have not yet received First Communion and First Reconciliation and who wish to prepare for these sacraments may contact Megan Gavrillen to create a plan with Father Joe.

When: Classes meet two Sundays per month from 4 pm to 5:30 pm. 

The fee is $35. If this fee presents a financial hardship for you, please contact Megan Gavrillen in order to discuss payment options.  A  Baptismal certificate is needed to register.
