Religious Education

Religious Education begins in first grade and continues through eighth grade. Children usually receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation (Confession) and First Eucharist (Communion) in the second grade. Most children are confirmed in the ninth grade. There are special classes for your child if he or she has missed any years of religious education instruction. If you know of someone who has a child in the first grade or who needs to receive their sacraments, please tell them to contact the Religious Education Office for more information on our religious education program.

These candles were created by our First Communicants. Parishioners are invited to take a candle and pray for that child as they prepare to receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist.
