The sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion require two consecutive years of religious education, typically beginning in First grade. Students will receive First Reconciliation and First Communion during their Second grade year.
Older students in Third grade and above who need to receive the sacraments will be placed in our Intermediate Sacraments Program, which also requires two consecutive years of religious education. Please contact the RE Office for details.
Confirmation also requires two consecutive years of religious education, beginning in Seventh grade. Over the two year period students work toward completing their requirements, which includes community service, attending Sunday Mass regularly, and attending various retreats and presentations.
If your child is in 9th grade or above and would like to be Confirmed, please contact Youth Ministry in the parish office, at (815)725-6880.
