Families gather for Peace Day prior to celebrating the Sacrament. Peace Day is an opportunity for interactive and creative learning, and discovering new ways to share the faith.

First Reconciliation

The Diocese of Cleveland requires all parishes to provide a Sacrament preparation process separate from the Family Parish School of Religion Program and the Catholic School program.

We are pleased to offer a preparation program that involves families as they learn about the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Families who are parishioners of Saint Clement Parish and Saint James Parish gather for parent meetings and intergenerational activities for the family to grow in their faith.

First Reconciliation preparation begins in early September with a parent meeting.

Families are provided with a student text and family guide which serves as a valuable tool for discovering and learning together.

Parents of students preparing for First Reconciliation and First Communion are invited to attend an informational meeting on Sunday, September 10, 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm at Saint Clement Parish Hall.

First Reconciliation is celebrated in December 2017.
