Families have the option of registering their children for three separate programs that prepare students for the sacraments of 1st Reconciliation and 1st Holy Communion. Any child enrolled at St. Cecilia School automatically prepares for these sacraments during their 2nd grade religion class. Parishioners who do not send their children to St. Cecilia School must register their 2nd grader in the appropriate PREP/EPIC classes. St. Cecilia Parishioners should register their children for the St. Cecilia PREP program here. St Anthony and St. Margaret-St. John parishioners should register their children for their EPIC program here.
Preparation for 1st Reconciliation and 1st Holy Communion also involves parent meetings and retreats.
Inquiries regarding 1st Reconciliation and 1st Holy Communion should be directed to our Regional Director of Religious Education, Cody Egner, at (513) 871-5757 ext. 215
