Please arrive at the Church by 10:50am. We will begin promptly at 11:00. In the vestibule, please sign in prior to entering the Church. Your child should also pick up a guide to Confession to take with to his or her seat.

Be sure to practice with your child using our How to make your 1st Confession handout. We also have an Examination of Conscience for Children available to assist children in their preparation.
