Sacrament Preparation: Sacrament Preparation is a two-year process for both Communion and Confirmation. Class attendance is mandatory. If there is an unexpected absence, the parent must notify the office. If more than a few classes are missed, you will have to meet with Isaac Deken our Youth Advocate. If a quarter of the classes are missed, the child will need to retake that year of preparation. Families are expected to attend Mass each week. Parents should be prepared to assist in the catechesis of their children for the sacraments, as they are their children’s main catechists for life. Diocesan and Parish Guidelines require parents to be prepared to assist in the catechesis of their children for the sacraments. There will be mandatory Parent Meetings, Family Events, Masses, Retreats, and similar events throughout the year.
