The sacrament preparation process is part of our faith formation programs. This includes the sacrament of First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation. It is our policy that in order to participate in the sacrament preparation process, your child needs to either be registered and regularly attending one of our faith formation programs the entire year before and during the year of the sacrament celebration, or attending a Catholic school. Registration for our programs occurs in the late summer through fall and can be found at that time on our web page. Please contact the program ministers with questions.
