Sacramental Preparation

 At the heart of the Catholic faith is the reception of the sacraments: ‘The whole liturgical life of the Church revolves around the Eucharist…and the sacraments” Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) 1113

Second grade students* receive the sacraments of Reconciliation in January and Holy Eucharist in May. Together with their teachers, parish priests, and their parents, the children prepare throughout the year during regular religion classes, sacramental meetings, gatherings, celebrations, and attendance at Sunday Mass.

* Also applies for students in upper grade levels that are missing their sacraments.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered every Saturday afternoon and on special occasions, such as Advent and Lent, at Holy Family Catholic Church. Families are encouraged to receive this sacrament together on an ongoing basis.
