The Sacraments

The sacraments are a vital part of our faith and who we are as Catholics. Each time we receive a sacrament we walk further in our religious journey, reaffirm our discipleship, and become closer to Jesus. Since receiving the sacraments are so important we take sacramental preparation very seriously. We need to take the time to learn more about and reflect on this important part of our Faith. 


 

Child Preparation

All children must attend religious education classes from grades 1-8 (Kindergarten is optional) in order to receive First Communion in 2nd Grade and Confirmation in 8th grade.  There is a two year program of immediate preparation for each of these Sacraments.
