Children become part of God’s family through the Sacraments of Initiation. In this diocese, it is customary for children to be baptized at an early age. Typically, our students receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Eucharist in the 3rd grade and Confirmation in the 8th grade. Please note that these Sacraments will not be administered to your child merely because he/she is a member of the 3rd or 8th grade classes. You must request this privilege for him/her. Parent classes are a mandatory part of the Sacramental Preparation Program. Baptismal Certificates are required as a part of registration for sacraments.
If you have an older child who has not received these Sacraments and you wish him/her to do so, arrangements must be made with the Pastor and Principal before the end of October.
