First Communion and Confirmation 2023

                It’s hard to start thinking about 2023 already, but we have to get started. It’ll be here before you know it! As you know most of our Sacramental Preparation programs are meant to be two years in length. The first year is meant to get our young people engaged in the process and continue the faith formation begun at Baptism and the second year is the more “proximate” preparation for the given sacrament. Normally, we celebrate First Communion with our Second Graders and now we are celebrating Confirmation with our Seventh Graders. In other words, children in First and Sixth Grade should be in Faith Formation the year before.
If you have a child who would like to receive one of these sacraments in the coming year, please send us your name, number and email. Obviously, this applies to all children who are older who have not yet received these sacraments. Give us their information as well.

First Communion/First Reconciliation: Second Saturday of the month 10:00 am -12:00 at St. Edward . For Baptized Catholic children in second grade or older. 

Confirmation: Third Sunday of the month 2:30 -4:30 pm at St. Edward  For Catholic youth and young adults in 7th grade and older.
