Religious Education

Preparation for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation is separate from and in addition to  the weekly Religious Formation program.  The preparation is designed to support families in the preparation of their children.  Formation sessions are provided for the parents and the children.  Sponsors and Godparents are welcome to participate.  Parents and children are expected to participate in all sessions.  

Registration for these sacraments is separate from the weekly Religious Formation program.
