First Confession Classes Fall of 2024

Candidates:

First Confession: Children who are in the 2nd grade level of religion class (homeschooling or standard school) may receive first Confession.

Requirements:

BAPTISMAL CERTIFICATE: If your child is wishing to receive their sacraments, a newly dated Baptismal certificate must be provided from the parish of Baptism. These must be newly dated. Please have them emailed to sacraments@olmcfssp.org. If your child was Baptized at OLMC, we already have a record of your child’s Baptism and therefore no request is needed.

CONFESSION CLASS: If your child is eligible to receive FHC and/or Conf. in 2024, and they have not taken Confession classes at OLMC, they must pass the Confession exam at OLMC before receiving their sacraments. They are welcome to attend classes before taking the exam.
