Registration for Sacramental Prep for the 2021 is currently closed as we are now 8 weeks into preparation.  Please check back in late August or early September for 2022 Registration.

COVID-19 Update:  The in-person preparation retreats have been canceled.  All children are preparing at home via the programs Mend and Nourish  

We believe that the COVID-19 climate remains too unpredictable to rely solely on a one-day retreat. Preparing for these two special sacraments should be an enjoyable Christ-centered experience. Therefore, we have made the decision to cancel the In-Person Preparation Retreats. Please continue to reserve the date of March 13th, 10a-12pm for the Penance Service. In the event that we are unable to have the Penance Service as planned, we will use Sign-Up Genius to schedule individual reconciliation appointments.

Mend is a First Reconciliation family experience designed to equip parents to teach, share faith, and pray with their children as they lead 7 family meetings in your home. Families will encounter Jesus and experience the beauty of Reconciliation as it connects to daily life by forming clay, making field goals, reading Scripture, engaging in meaningful conversation, and much more.

Nourish is a First Holy Communion family experience.

Traditional classroom learning will be enhanced by parent participation as faith transitions from the classroom to the living room.
