First Reconciliation and First Communion

Sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion is open to all Good Shepherd parish youth in second grade or above. Preparation is also open to non-parishioner students from Good Shepherd School who receive permission from their pastors. Children who enroll in this program must also be enrolled in the Good Shepherd Family Formation program or Good Shepherd School. Children who desire to receive these sacraments must be baptized in the Catholic Church. If your child has not yet been baptized, or if he or she was baptized in another Christian community, but you would like him or her to receive additional sacraments, please contact the parish office so that we can plan accordingly.
