Mysteries of Life in Reconciliation and Eucharist


First Reconciliation for Nativity children is celebrated annually in the fall (November) and is typically for those in the third grade.

Family Gatherings and resources for Sacrament preparation begin in July; thus the time is upon us.

Preparations at Nativity aim to help the parents lead their children to attain both knowledge and fervent desire to receive Our Lord in the Sacraments. Careful family preparation is necessary so as to understand the Mystery of Christ according to individual capacity, and receive the Body of the Lord with strengthened faith and sincere devotion.  

                       “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 1 Cor. 11:24

The Sacrament of the Eucharist (Holy Communion) is sacred for all Catholics. In this Sacrament we receive the Most Holy Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ and we are united to Him and the Church in a profound and mystical way. The Church encourages all her members to approach the Throne of Grace worthily each week to receive Holy Communion on the Lord’s Day (Sunday) at Mass during the  Celebration of the Sacred Liturgy.

For children, we expect to offer First Holy Communion celebrations in the spring of 2021 during the Easter Season (after Easter Sunday). To complete enrollment in sacrament preparation children also need to simultaneously participate in an additional  regular gathering for faith formation. Additional faith formation is considered to be attending a Catholic School or parish Faith Formation sessions.
