You are the primary educator of your child in the Sacraments.

 The parish and the schools are here to assist you in this process.  

The classes are meant to supplement what you are already doing, and will be doing, in the home.  

It is up to you as parents to work through the work book alongside your child.  

Let this be a special time for you.  Share from your own experiences and stories.  

Answer their questions and listen to their joys and struggles.

or helping to prepare your child for the Sacraments,

please contact the parish by phone or email, and speak to us. 

 

We are here to help.  

You will receive an updated Calendar with dates and schedules for your child by e-mail.

 

Your child needs to have received 1st Reconciliation  BEFORE they receive 1st Eucharist.
