Preparation for First Communion

Second grade is the typical time for your child to receive the Sacraments of First Holy Communion and Reconciliation. Older children can also receive these Sacraments through the Religious Education program.

Preparation for Confirmation

Your child needs to be at least 13 years old to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Youth up to the 12th grade can receive Confirmation through the Religious Education program.


If your school age child was not Baptized as an infant, they can also prepare for the Sacrament of Baptism through the religious education program.
