Education/Faith

Baptism Preparation
Baptism classes are currently offered online. Parents are able to take this class at any time that is convenient for them. Visit the Baptism page. Once parents have completed this course please contact the parish office to schedule a date and time for Baptism.

Confirmation
Confirmation is typically celebrated in the 10th grade. Preparation begins in the 9th grade with teens participating in small groups, retreats, corporal works of mercy, saint project, and parish activities. Adults who haven't been confirmed and wish to do so, please contact the parish office for more information.

First Eucharist
This sacrament is celebrated in the second grade, after receiving First Reconciliation. Children must be in at least their second year of Religious Education in order to prepare for and receive the Sacrament of First Eucharist. Children and parents go through a formation process prior to receiving the sacrament.  Families with children older than second grade that have not celebrated First Eucharist will work with the Faith Formation staff in preparation for this sacrament.

First Reconciliation
This sacrament is usually received in the second grade. Children and parents go through a formation process as a group prior to sacrament reception. Parental involvement is a very important part of the preparation process.

Marriage Preparation
Couples wishing to celebrate the Sacrament of Marriage need to contact the pastor at least 6 months in advance of the desired wedding date. You can find wedding guidelines (Still to come). 

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
RCIA is the process of conversion for those seeking baptism in the Catholic Church or for those belonging to another faith, but wishing to become members of the Catholic Church.  RCIA is also the process for those who want to complete their Sacraments of Initiation (First Eucharist and Confirmation). The program begins in September with weekly gatherings until Easter. Typically candidates will celebrate the fullness of the faith at Easter Vigil.
