Preparation of children for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist is offered in a separate preparation program in addition to weekly classes. A key part of the preparation process is designed to help parents grow in their own understanding and appreciation of the sacraments and to assist them as they pass along their faith, beliefs, and values to their children. Parent participation is mandatory.
Eligible candidates must be registered active members of the parish and should:
- Be in second grade or above
- Weekly participation in Sunday Mass is a MUST
- Participate and maintain satisfactory attendance in weekly classes or be a Catholic school student
- Have satisfactorily completed TWO FULL YEARS of faith formation instruction in a formal faith formation program in the year prior to beginning sacramental preparation. New parishioners must submit transfer records upon registration.
