Thanks to Jim and Mindi for coordinating the First Eucharist retreats!  Second graders made a banner to decorate the church and practiced for the First Eucharist mass.

Parish Policy for Sacramental Preparation – All Parishes:

It is required that a child be enrolled in a Catholic School or a parish Faith Formation program at least one year prior to preparing for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist.  Continued enrollment in a Catholic School or a parish Faith Formation program is required for youth who wish to prepare for Confirmation.  If you have children in grades 1-10 who are not attending a parochial school and are not currently enrolled in a parish Faith Formation class, please call 876.5540 to contact Jim Hamerand.
