Children must be at least 7 years old to begin and parents must be able to commit to regular Mass attendance in order for their child to make their First Communion.If you are interested in classes for the 2021/2022 school years, please contact Good Shepherd's

Reconciliation

Every day we make choices. Most of the choices we make are good, but sometimes the choices we make are not. When we make choices that go against the will of God, we sin. When we sin, we need to ask for forgiveness. We can do this in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as Confession. In the Sacrament of Reconciliation, we tell our sins to a priest who in turn helps us to find ways to make changes and improve our actions. When we do this, we show God we are sorry for what we have done wrong. Through the power of the Holy Spirit and the words and actions of the priest, God forgives us and heals us. Preparation for First Confession is often done before First Communion. In Switzerland, we believe that children should be a little older to fully realize the importance of this Sacrament. Preparation for Reconciliation is done the year after First Communion.
