The Diocese of Cleveland requires all parishes to provide a Sacrament preparation process separate from the Family Parish School of Religion Program and the Catholic School Program.

We are pleased to offer a preparation program that involves families as they prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation with their child.  Families who are parishioners of Saint James Parish and Saint Clement Parish gather for parent meetings and intergenerational activities for the family to grow in their faith.

First Reconciliation preparation begins in early September with a parent meeting. First Reconciliation is celebrated in December.
