First Reconciliation & First Eucharist

Contact:  Janet Mitchell:; 203-838-3788, ext. 107.

  • The Sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as Confession, is one of the Sacraments of healing—the ways in which our sins are forgiven. First Reconciliation is received prior to receiving the Sacrament of the Eucharist.
  • The Eucharist is the greatest of the Sacraments of initiation, the “source and summit of the Christian life.” In Holy Communion, we the Real Presence of Jesus under the appearance of bread and wine. Preparations for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist are coordinated through our Faith Formation Program, whether your child attends public or Catholic school.

From Janet Mitchell: We are starting back slowly to what everyone calls “the New Normal.” Faith Formation, like many things, will be different this year due to Covid-19. We will have a mostly Remote Learning Model, and the fee will be adjusted accordingly.  We have been preparing Lesson Plans and Curriculum for the Sacramental years.

With the safety and well-being of our students and our Catechists as our number one priority, there remains the possibility of in-person check-in by Grade once per month, with guidelines in place, such as masks, temperature checks, small groups, extra cleaning, etc.

We look for a start date early November. Upon registration:

  • All materials, such as workbooks or eBooks and prayer books, will be provided for students to work on at home.
  • All students will receive a Prayer Booklet with prayers that should be learned by Grade Level.
  • In addition, each week, a lesson, with a corresponding assignment will be emailed to the student. Each lesson will correspond to a specific chapter in the workbook or subject of Catholic liturgy and worksheets will be included in the email.
  • Some lessons will have a recorded video to watch and include a link to Catholic for additional material and quizzes.
  • There will be assignments that are expected to be submitted weekly to
  • All students are encouraged to attend weekly mass, either in person or virtually via Facebook Live: StMatthewNorwalk.
  • We remain committed to helping to grow and enrich your children’s Faith in Jesus. Together we grow stronger in Christ’s Love.
