Diocese of Joliet Manuals
First Communion and
The diocese requires two years of preparation for First Reconciliation & First Communion, and for Confirmation. St. Charles Borromeo’s programming meets this requirement. It is only fair to the students that we adequately prepare them, and it is truly fitting that we be conscientious in how we approach the sacraments, moments of grace that they are, deserving a readiness and preparedness in those who receive them.
As a result, those entering our program in 2nd or 8th grade seeking sacraments without having completed 1st or 7th grade in our program (or giving written proof of having completed these grades in another parish’s program) will be required to “go back a year” in Faith Formation to complete two full years of preparation.
Children who are in 3rd – 7th grade and in need of Baptism, First Reconciliation, or First Communion are required to attend Wednesday night classes with their grade level for two years and can receive the sacraments in the second year. Parents are required to attend all sacrament preparation meetings/retreats during the second year. If your children fall into this category, please contact the office to make arrangements.
