First Reconciliation preparation and celebration is open to registered SJA parish families beginning in second grade. Here are some questions to ponder when making a decision.

First Reconciliation plans are currently on an indefinite hold due to COVID-19. If families want to prepare in order to be ready, they may work through the on-line lessons with their child at this link:

St. Joan of Arc Catholic Community provides individuals the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation by a priest and also provides meaningful Communal Prayer Services of Reconciliation for all.

The Sacrament is available on a weekly basis most Saturday evenings preceding the 5:00 mass and by appointment with one of St. Joan’s clergy. Please check the SJA calendar for dates.

St. Joan of Arc holds Communal Prayer Services of Reconciliation twice a year, during Advent and Lent in the Church. The Services include prayer, reflection, music and ritual which encourage meditation on forgiveness and grace in our lives. Individual Sacramental Reconciliation is available with a priest following these services.

Please contact the Parish Center  for more information.
