Sacramental Preparation of Children is completed in this Parish rather than in your child’s school. Parents participate in the preparation process. A sacrament is a sign through which God communicates God's love, God's life and God's forgiveness of us - one of the ways God says, "Here I Am. I Love You!" Children who have been baptized Catholic prepare for First Eucharist when they are Grade 2 or older, and First Reconciliation when they are Grade 3 or older. Registration takes place in December - January each year. Registration for the Sacrament of Confirmation for children Grade 6 and older takes place each year from June to early September.
