Catechesis for the Sacrament of Reconciliation is to be conducted separately from catechesis
for First Eucharist since each sacrament deserves its own concentrated reparation. Catechesis
for penance is to precede First Eucharist and must be kept distinct by a clear and unhurried
separation. Preparation occurs for 2nd graders and parents in January through March. We utilize
the Dynamic Catholic program “Blessed”.
You may contact the Religious Education office at (401)333-2347 or the Parish office at (401)333-6060 for more information on registration.
The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as the Sacrament of Penance, or Penance and Reconciliation) has three elements: conversion, confession and celebration. In it we find God's unconditional forgiveness, and as a result we are called to forgive others.
Reconciliation is available at St. John Vianney on Saturdays at 4:00 PM
