Sacramental Preparation
"For he has anointed me."

Parents are the primary teachers of their children as they prepare them to receive the Sacraments. As part of the School of Religion (Grades K-5), we complement and assist our parents in preparing our children to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation. For those who were not baptized as infants, we have a Rite of Christian Initiation for Children program as well.

For each Sacrament, parents and children attend workshops and retreats. We support them in the classroom throughout the year as we teach the basics of our faith. Each child who seeks to receive a Sacrament attends School of Religion.

We prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation in the Fall. Also known as First Penance, we celebrate this sacrament here at Holy Name.

We celebrate First Eucharist in the Spring  Each candidate must first prepare for  the Sacrament of Reconciliation prior to registering for the Sacrament of First Eucharist.

We celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation. The dates are assigned by the Diocese, so please make sure you register well in advance.
