Restored Order – Learn More About Why We’re Moving To Confirmation Before First Communion

After thoughtful debate and discussion during the Fourth Diocesan Synod in 2017, Catholics from across the diocese, representing every parish, voted overwhelmingly for Catholic schools and PSR programs to move toward the proper sequence of the Sacraments of Christian Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist for children and adults. This means Confirmation will come before Eucharist and both will occur in third grade (this transition at your parish is happening now). First Reconciliation will still occur in second grade.
