The most intimate encounters we have with Jesus Christ are
through the celebration of the sacraments. We work with parents to help prepare
their children for these graced moments in which they take a step forward in
First reconciliation and first communion are
celebrated when the children are in second grade. There are two (2)
parent-child First Reconciliation prep sessions in November to prepare the
children for the celebration in December (Sunday, Dec. 2 at 2:30pm). There are four (4) parent-child First
Communion prep sessions in March/April to prepare the children for the celebration in
May (Sunday, May 5 at 10:30am). Children must also be attending on-going faith formation (at the parish
or a Catholic school). Click for a registration form.
Youth in grades 10 and older are invited to participate in
preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation. All youth must be
involved in regular, on-going faith formation and also register for Confirmation
prep through our Faith Formation program. Click for a registration form.
