In the sacrament of Penance, or Reconciliation, we receive the infinite love and mercy of God. First Penance is a vital part of the preparation to receive First Communion. The Visitation of Our Lady community welcomes your child to experience the joy that comes from repentantly confessing sins and receiving absolution.
Religious instruction is required during 1st grade and 2nd grade in order for children to receive this sacrament in the 2nd grade. If your child is not attending a Catholic school, please register your child for the CCD Program. Thank you for your commitment to this program and to your child’s religious education.
First Penance at Visitation of Our Lady will be celebrated on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at 7:00 pm.
Parents of Penance/Communion students must attend a Parent Seminar on Wednesday, January 25**, 2017 at 7:00 pm.
