SACRAMENT PREPARATION

SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION Preparation GRADES 2-5

Baptized Catholic Students in the 2nd grade (& up to 5th Grade) prepare for and celebrate the Sacrament of First Reconciliation.  Participants and their parents come together on three Saturday mornings to learn about this beautiful Sacrament from September through November.

The fourth meeting is the Celebration of the Sacrament of First Reconciliation.  This program relies heavily on parent participation both in class and at home to complete each session. 

Participants MUST be baptized in the Catholic faith to receive sacraments. 

If your child is NOT a baptized Catholic, contact the Religious Formation Office.

SACRAMENTS OF CONFIRMATION & COMMUNION

GRADES 3-5

Baptized Catholic students in Grade 3, and up to Gr. 5, prepare to receive both Confirmation and First Eucharist/Communion in the Restored Order. Children MUST be baptized Catholic and have received the Sacrament of First Reconciliation to register. 

Sessions for this age group begin in January and continue until the celebration of these Sacraments with our Bishop in the Spring. Sessions are offered on either Saturday mornings from 10:00-11:30am OR on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-7:30pm. Parents can choose either day/time as they fit into the family schedule. Saturday's session is repeated the following Tuesday!

Required documents for participation include the Sacrament Preparation Registration Form, Medical Release Form, your child's Baptismal Certificate, and, if registered at another Catholic Church, a permission letter from your pastor to participate here at St. Francis.

ALL SESSIONS WILL BE HELD AT THE HOLY ANGELS WING OF SFHS!
