Dear Parents,

It is with joy that the people of Immaculate Heart of Mary parish welcome your child as they receive the sacrament of Reconciliation and Communion this year! All sacraments are times of joy and of paramount importance in the life of the Church and each of its members. The sacraments are acts of the Church, having both a personal and communal dimension.


The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops as well as the Diocese of Little Rock has established regulations which every Catholic Church must adhere to. These requirements include: preparing for the sacrament within community, the student completing a year of faith formation prior to entering sacrament preparation, and attending Sunday Mass.
