Parents are asked to take part in baptism instruction before their child is baptized.
First Reconciliation and First Communion
Children in second grade are prepared for First Reconciliation in the fall and celebrate the sacrament before Christmas. Children are then prepared for the celebration of their First Communion in the spring, usually the Sunday following Easter.
Those desiring to be confirmed in their Catholic faith participate in a two-year preparation program. Confirmation is celebrated in the spring of the second year.
Couples are asked to begin their preparation for the sacrament of marriage at least four months before the proposed date.
