Preparing to receive First Reconciliation and First Eucharist is a 2 year process, usually spanning Grades 1 and 2 (older children who have not yet received these sacraments are welcome!). First Reconciliation is celebrated in the winter of Year 2, and First Eucharist is celebrated in the spring of Year 2.  Preparation includes parent-child retreats ahead of each Sacrament.

Preparation for Confirmation is a 2 year program, traditionally spanning Grades 9 and 10.  Catholic school students, who receive theology on a regular basis, are warmly welcomed.  Catholic school students should plan on attending the Confirmation retreat during both years of preparation, and should plan on attending Faith Formation classes through the parish in the second year of preparation.
