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 Isaac Deken our Youth Advocate and/or Christy Breier our Director of Faith Formation. 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/Eucharist

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. The following year of preparation they will attend their correct grade session on Faith Formation weekends.  On the “off” weekends, there will be a mandatory Parent Meeting or a Sacrament Child Day for ONLY those children and parents who are in their Second Year of Sacrament Preparation.
