Preparation for the Sacraments
Our parishes will be beginning soon classes for the children who will be receiving the Sacraments of Initiation. If you have a child or know of a child who is currently in 2nd grade or above who has not received the Sacrament of Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation please register for the upcoming class.
St. Anne/St. Raphael – Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
St. Catherine/St. Gabriel – Email: email@example.com
The class for First Reconciliation will begin on Wednesday, February 3rd and will be held every Wednesday through March 24th from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm at St. Catherine’s parish hall . There will be an in-person and virtual option for all families who either find the distance to great or have concerns about the pandemic. If for some reason in-person meetings become impossible we will continue meeting virtually. The format of the meetings will include a time of prayer at the beginning for the parents and children. Then the children will go to their classroom to work with their catechist while the parents study a similar topic. All adults of our parish are welcome to join in-person or virtually during the parent class if they wish to learn more and support the young parents of our parish during this important time of faith formation. The topics covered will be good for EVERYONE!! The topics will include: Baptism, Sin, Forgiveness, Redemption, Penance, Reconciliation, Lent, and Holy Week.
