Recently, the 2nd graders had their First Reconciliation! Reconciliation is when you go to a priest and ask for forgiveness for your sins. Reconciliation is one of the Seven Sacraments, and to recieve First Communion you must first receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Here are some 2nd graders’ responses to a few questions about their First Reconciliation:


Were you scared/nervous to confess your sins?

Viviana Leyva: No, because my brother told me it was easy.

Antonio Camara: No, because I knew that Reconciliation was good because it takes away sadness and anger.

Harper Link: Yes, but it turned out to be fine.

Charlotte Petersen: Yes, I was scared.

Jackson Rannazzisi: No, because this was not something to be scared about.

Did you feel prepared for Reconciliation?

Viviana: Yes, the teachers prepared us well.

Antonio: Yes, the teachers did a good job preparing us.

Harper: Yes, we learned about Reconciliation and God and studied religion.

Charlotte: Yes, the teachers helped us.

Jackson: Yes, we were prepared.

How did you feel knowing your sins have been forgiven?

Viviana: I felt good because my sins were gone.

Antonio: I felt good because now we don’t have bad sins in our lives.

Harper: I felt good, and this prepares us for First Communion.

Charlotte: It feels good because I don’t have to worry about those sins.

Jackson: I feel good knowing my sins have been forgiven.


Congratulations to the 2nd graders for receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation! They are now preparing for First Communion in a few months, which will be very special because they will receive the Eucharist for the first time! They are looking forward to it!
