imageFirst Reconciliation
Children who are in their second year of Religious Education prepare for this Sacrament of Healing. Parents, as the first teachers of their children, are asked to attend a seminar in October so that together we may guide the children to our loving and forgiving Father.


First Eucharist
Children receive this Sacrament of Initiation in May at the conclusion of their second year of Religious Education. During classroom instruction and with take-home assignments, children are educated on the Eucharistic Meal as both a Sacrifice and a Celebration and the special gift it is to us. Information and details for this Sacrament are also covered at the parent meeting in October. Reflection on the Sunday readings at home is encouraged so that the children might come to know our Savior, Jesus Christ.


Confirmation is celebrated in the sixth year of Religious Education. As a reminder of their baptismal commitment, candidates serve their Church, family and community. Candidates study, pray, and reflect during their preparation for this Initiation Sacrament. Attendance at weekly classes and the completion of requirements are an essential part of preparation for Confirmation. An important parent meeting in October covers all necessary information and details pertaining to the preparation and reception of this Sacrament.
