The Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated at Saint Mary of the Assumption Church at 3:00 pm on Saturdays.  We recommend that penitents arrive promptly for confessions to ensure adequate opportunity for the celebration of this sacrament.   Saint Mary’s also offers Communal Reconciliation services twice a year during Advent and Lent.  Please see the Bulletin for more information about these Communal services.

First Reconciliation:

Children generally receive their First Reconciliation by regularly attending our Second Grade Parish School of Religion (PSR) program.  Older children and adults wishing to participate in First Reconciliation can contact the parish office at 937-557-1711 and request information on our RCIC and RCIA program.  

Prerequisites for First Reconciliation:

A copy of your child’s Baptismal Certificate and regular attendance in our Second Grade PSR program is required for your child to receive First Reconciliation.
