Sacramental Preparations

All students receive daily religious instruction according to directives from the Diocesan Office of Religious Education and Catechesis. All classes attend Mass at least bi-weekly at 8:30 A.M. (usually Wednesday). Individual classes plan special prayer services throughout the school year. As our religious studies focus on Social Justice and Corporal Works of Mercy, we ensure that there are appropriate service opportunities available for all grades. Parents are encouraged to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation regularly with their children so that their children will associate this experience with family worship rather than classroom regimentation.

Students receive initial instruction concerning the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Sacrament of the Eucharist during the second grade. Opportunities to celebrate these two sacraments are provided in the spring of the year. The eighth grade is prepared for the Sacrament of Confirmation. All sacramental programs are parish-based as directed by the Diocesan Office of Religious Education and Catechesis and coordinated through the Parish Religious Education Office. A fee is assessed.
