Sacrament Preparation

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 Glory Hartdegen, our director. 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.


Reconciliation and Eucharist: Preparation TRADITIONALLY begins in First Grade with the children receiving their Sacraments during the second year. IF your child is older, their first full year of preparation will be done through  enrollment and attendance in their School Grade-level sessions.
