Two (2) full years in our program are required to prepare a child to receive each of the Sacraments (except for Baptism). Regular participation at weekend Mass is required to receive these Sacraments, and each child will be asked to sign a weekly Commitment Book located in the front of the Church (to be explained at the parent meetings).
The Sacrament of Baptism
The Sacrament of Baptism requires extra classes of preparation for children ages 5 and up. Consult the Director for these requirements.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation
Children in grade 2 or above who are beginning their second year of faith formation are eligible to begin immediate preparation for these sacraments. Also, children who attend Catholic School should register for these classes. Our sacramental preparation is a family centered program.
