Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can I still register my child for Sacramental Preparation?

No; Faith Formation registration for the 2020-2021  cycle is now closed.

Someone told me that my child must have two years of faith formation before they can receive their First Holy Communion. Is this true?

To receive their first Reconciliation and first Holy Communion, the church teaches that the person must be baptized and has reached the age of reason (usually 7 or older and in 2nd grade or higher.) The person should also be formed in their faith before they begin Sacramental Preparation. Our parish, along with most others, requests that the person completes at least one year of formal Faith Formation, either at a Catholic parish or at a Catholic school.

Are Faith Formation classes offered in person?

At this time, for the health & safety of all, classes are being held online, until further notice.

If my child was previously scheduled to receive their First Holy Communion or Confirmation in  May 2020, can they still do it in 2020, or do they have to wait until Spring 2021?

We celebrated the sacrament of Confirmation on August 29th and First Holy Communion on September 19th and October 17, 2020. The next ‘First Reconciliation’ will occur December 10, 2020. The next ‘First Communion’ will be celebrated in May 2021. The next Sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated in  May 12, 2021. Please contact the parish office to ensure that your child is included on the next round of Sacramental celebrations.
