Sacraments & Religious Education
Religion is taught in all grade levels according to the child’s level. Celebration of the Mass on Friday or on a holy day is part of the religion curriculum for kindergarten through eighth grades.
Preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion are done at home through the Religious Education Coordinator. Reconciliation is made as a group with the parish. Reception of First Communion is made with the family at a mass time decided by the family. Preparation for Confirmation is carried out by the Religious Education Coordinator. The sacrament of Confirmation is received at a special Mass for all parishioners receiving this sacrament.
Parent information meetings regarding the sacraments are scheduled each year. Information regarding the meetings is sent home with the children and published in both the school newsletter and the parish bulletin.
