Preparation for Penance: Holy Spirit Students

Children in second grade who attend Holy Spirit School begin preparation for the sacrament of Penance & Eucharist. Please click here to register your child.

If your child was not baptized at Holy Spirit, please provide Holy Spirit with a recently issued official baptismal certificate, Attn: Reconciliation/Eucharist. This may be obtained from the church where your child was baptized. The certificate must be issued after July 13, 2019. Original certificates, copies of the original or certificates dated earlier than July 13, 2019, will not be accepted and you will need to request a new certificate.

The fee for First Eucharist/Penance is $40. School families will be charged on their Smart Tuition account. To register your child, complete the following steps:

  1. Fill out the Google form
  2. Pay online (if not attending Holy Spirit school)
