First Penance

Penance restores the gift of God's grace after it has been lost through sin.  Penance reconciles us with Christ.  First Penance is generally received by second graders and the children prepare for the sacrament in religious education classes (catholic school or PREP program).  If you are an adult or have an older child needing to prepare for First Penance, please contact our director of religious education at PREP@stgabrielnorwood.org.
