“The Eucharist is the principal expression of Christ’s presence among us,”
– Pope John Paul II.
The Sacramental Preparation Program is for children ages 7-12 Our program is a two-year course. You need to be at seven-years-old (usually 2nd grade) and baptized in the Catholic Church to begin sacramental preparation for First Communion.
The first year concentrates on age-appropriate tenants of Catholicism.
The second year concentrates on preparing students for reconciliation and the reception of the Holy Eucharist. This year requires extensive participation by parents or guardians. The year culminates with two or more special First Communion Masses in which all children enrolled in the program and have completed all requirements will receive their first communion.
Sacramental Prep classes are taught in conjunction with the Elementary Religious Education program.
