Sacraments

First Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation are three very important Sacraments on your child’s way to being a good Catholic.  Our RE prepares your child during their Elementary and Middle School years.  In order for a child to receive these Sacraments they must regularly attend RE classes for instruction.  Parents and/or child will meet with our staff and Catechists for meetings and retreats as noted on our calendars.  Additional fees are only required for Confirmation.

 

First Penance which provides God’s loving forgiveness will be celebrated in January 2019 for students enrolled in 2nd Grade.  There are required meetings and retreats in conjunction with First Penance which parents and children are expected to attend.

 

First Eucharist welcomes children to the Table of the Lord, as they receive for the first time the Body and Blood of Jesus.  This sacrament will be celebrated for students enrolled in 2nd Grade in April and May 2019.  There are required meetings and retreats in conjunction with First Eucharist which parents and children are expected to attend.

 

Confirmation where our Candidates affirm their Baptismal promises and receive the Gifts of the Holy Spirit will be celebrated in May 2019 for students enrolled in 8th Grade.  There are several requirements which need to be fulfilled in order for Confirmation to be administered.  The Candidates will be receiving their “Confirmation Candidates Booklet” in April of 2018 for an in-depth explanation of these requirements.  Candidates are expected to participate in weekly and Holy Day Masses in addition to their Religious Education classes, meetings, retreats and volunteer community service activities.
