Check the sacraments page for information on currently scheduled events.
Preparation for Confirmation will begin with children who are in third grade or older and completed in fourth grade or older. The content for grade 8 in PSR and SJN focuses on Church. Becoming Church is another text that is integrated with the PSR and SJN religion text. Preparation begins with registration, parent meetings, and enrollment. It concludes with retreat, interview, and the RITE. Check the sacraments page for information on currently scheduled events.
Preparation begins in Grade 2 or older. Check the sacraments page for information on currently scheduled events.
Parent meetings are attended when your child is in first grade and then parents decide when their child is ready to receive Reconciliation. A textbook is given at this time so that families might prepare their child for this sacrament. The U.S. Bishops suggest that young children should be attending communal penance services to become familiar with the sacrament and then receive the sacrament at one of these services when they are ready. Check the sacraments page for information on currently scheduled events.
