Sacramental Preparation Programs


First Communion (Second Grade)

Celebrating the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist for the first time is part of the second grade experience for most children.  St. Justin school children are mandated to participate in the parish program, which is formulated as a community experience.  The Director of Religious Education works with our second grade teacher and parents to prepare their children for fuller participation in the worship of our Church. All the children of our parish prepare for the sacraments together.  First Reconciliation is celebrated during Advent.  Celebration of First Eucharist takes place during the Easter season within Sunday liturgy.  In accordance with Diocesan guidelines, the Sacrament of Eucharist is celebrated with the entire community and not privately.  Please direct inquiries to the Director of the parish Religious Education Program at the parish office at (408) 983-0354.

Sacrament of Reconciliation

Reconciliation is planned at least once a year during Advent and/or Lent for students in grades 3-8.
