Parish youth receive First Reconciliation in their continuing journey with Christ

On January 10th and 17th, the following children participated for the first time in the Sacrament of Reconciliation at St. Catherine's: Jake, Kaden, Julia, Julianna, Dominick, Matteo, Carlo, Riley, Olivia, Russell, Bryce, Kendall, Gabriel, Luke, Morgan, Lance, Brooke, Evann, Colin, Brady, Kathryn, Matthew, Cassandra, Jamie, Sophia, Nathaniel, and Kevin.

According to the XIII Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, the sacrament of penance and reconciliation is "the privileged place to receive God's mercy and forgiveness....In this sacrament, all the baptized have a new and personal encounter with Jesus Christ."

Father Chester asks all parishioners to keep these young faithful in their prayers as they continue to prepare for First Eucharist in May.
