First Penance & First Eucharist

The Sacraments of First Penance and First Eucharist are typically made when a child is in second grade (at least 7 years of age, which is considered the age of reason in the Diocese of Rochester).

Sacrament of First Penance must be completed prior to First Eucharist.

It is the expectation that all sacrament candidates receive continuous instruction in religious education separate from the sacrament prep programs. This means that children seeking First Penance and First Eucharist must begin classes in faith formation in first grade.
