Sacramental Preparation

First Reconciliation and First Communion

For those wishing to have their children receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion in 2022, the Parent Kick-off meeting will be at 6:45pm on Tuesday, October 12th in the Gathering Space. Our program consists of material covered by parents and children together at home, group workshops, a retreat, and regular Sunday Mass! 

First Reconciliation and First Communion are ordinarily celebrated in second grade. Any child in the 2nd grade through 8th grade may prepare in this program. 

The registration deadline for the 2021-2022 year is November 1, 2021

If you have a child older than 8th grade, please contact Jacob Hornecker at the parish office, and we will work something out for you starting later in the fall.

Confirmation

Confirmation preparation begins with a Parent/Confirmandi meeting each fall. We have a two year program for high schoolers, ordinarily starting in the fall of 9th grade with Confirmation being in the spring of 10th grade, with meetings about every other week. Anyone beginning 9th grade through 12th grade is now eligible to register for Year 1, with Confirmation to take place in 2023. Students coming into their second year of the program still need to register this fall. 

The 2021-2022 Kick-Off Meeting for both returning and new students and their parents will be Wednesday, September 22nd from 6:30-8pm.  

Confirmation Calendar 2021-2022

The registration process is the same for Year 1 (new) and Year 2 (returning) students:
