First Reconciliation and First Eucharist
Second grade public school students prepare for First Reconciliation and First Communion in their weekly classes during regular PSR time. Catholic school students receive preparation at school and also attend certain classes together with public school students during the year. Parents attend special meetings and activities with their children. They also work with their children at home.

We offer a class that meets Wednesday evenings to prepare older students who have not yet celebrated the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, and Eucharist.

Pre-Confirmation/Confirmation Program
Sacramental preparation is provided for 7th-12 graders. Adult volunteers are needed to teach the classes and serve as sponsors.
     Confirmation One – Grade 7 or older students not enrolled in a Catholic school attend classes during regular PSR times on Wednesday evening or Sunday morning. Catholic school students also attend special sessions during their first year of Confirmation preparation.
     Confirmation Two – Grade 8 or older students (including those enrolled in a Catholic school) attend weekly classes on Sunday or Wednesday from September until Confirmation is celebrated.
