Sacramental Preparation:

Catechists partner with parents to help prepare children for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist (Communion). Children attend regular classes and parents/children participate in additional sessions. Most children receive First Communion in May of their 2nd grade year. Older children are welcome.  Learn More
