Sacramental Preparation

Parish and Parochial School programs provide general catechesis for reception of the Sacraments.  Immediate catechesis for the Sacraments is separate and apart from the Catholic Heritage Programs and is managed by the parish.


Children must have two years of Catechesis.  Most children prepare and receive Reconciliation and Eucharist in the Second Grade.

A sacrament preparation form and a family fee of $100 must be submitted to the Office of Faith Formation.

Parents must attend an orientation meeting to learn the theology of the sacrament, receiving a packet of information to lead parents in teaching the sacrament to their child. 

Children must attend a pre-sacrament retreat and well as partake of other activities that will be explained during the year.
