Fourth graders experience a renewal of the sacrament of reconciliation during Lent as part of their RE curriculum. Our students complete an extensive study of the Sacrament of Penance to prepare them to renew in the glorious Resurrection of our Savior.
Upon completion of the study, students and their Parents celebrate with a special Renewal Ceremony. Families celebrate the child’s Reconciliation Renewal in a communal penitential service with individual confessions. To participate all children must be enrolled in St. Norbert Parish RE classes the year prior (3rd grade) to and the year (4th grade) of the Reconciliation Renewal.
In addition to attending the Parent/Child Reconciliation meeting, Parents are encouraged to avail themselves the opportunity to receive the sacrament during the Reconciliation Renewal celebration.
As with all the sacraments, it is extremely important to a child’s renewal preparation to participate at Mass on a weekly basis.
