Sacramental preparation: Beginning in 2018, two continuing years of religious education preparation will be required. For the 2017-18 school year, we are making accommodations for students who will be in the second grade and who plan to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation and First Eucharist this year. However, by the 2018-19 school year, this accommodation will not be available. Students will be enrolled in the “First Year Sacraments” class (typically in the first grade). In that class, they will begin preparation for the Sacrament of Reconciliation and then, over the summer between first and second grade continue working with their parents so they can receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation early in the fall. “Second Year Sacraments” class (typically in second grade) will review Reconciliation and then spend time focusing on the gifts we receive at Confirmation and through the Eucharist.
For children older than third grade who are desiring to receive the Sacraments of Initiation, they will attend their regular grade religious education class but receive additional instruction throughout the year, so they can receive their Sacraments at the Easter Vigil.
Registration Fees are $25 for one child, $40 for two youth, or $60 for more than three., with an additional $20 Sacramental Preparation fee for those children preparing for their sacraments.
