God is generous with forgiveness and he helps us to experience this grace through the sacrament of confession (reconciliation). Through our religious education program we assist children in receiving their first confession, normally in 2nd grade.

We recommend children enter the program in kindergarten or 1st grade to begin their preparation for first confession and first Communion. See (religious education) to learn more about the program and how to register.

If your child is 3rd grade or up, and needs the sacraments, we have a special preparation program.

Please contact Jerry(jryndak@stpatrickparish.org) or Gail(gbrown@stpatrickparish.org) in the RE office or click here to learn more about this Religious Education program.   If your child is Confirmation age and needs to receive first confession and Communion, please contact Alyce Poziombka at apoziombka@stpatrickparish.org in our Confirmation Office and she will assist you.   If you are an adult and need the sacraments, please click RCIA program for information on preparation programs or call the parish office at 630-338-8000.

May the Lord’s peace be with you!
