First Reconciliation



1 Year

About the Course

Not only does it [the Sacrament of Penance] free us from our sins but it also challenges us to have the same kind of compassion and forgiveness for those who sin against us. We are liberated to be forgivers. We obtain new insight into the words of the Prayer of St. Francis: "It is in pardoning that we are pardoned." – United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

At St. Luke, First Reconciliation preparation can take about a year. We require our children to go thought some sort of preparation before receiving this sacrament. To sign up for these preparation courses please go the Religious Education tab and sign up for classes. First reconciliation is typical received  at around 1st or 2nd grade. If your child is outside the age bracket  please give the parish office a call at 630-668-1325 or email us at
