Sacraments for Older Youth

Preparation of First Sacraments

Children in grades 3-10 who have not received these sacraments must be registered in the school or faith formation programs. Special sacramental preparation classes can be arranged.

Families with school-aged children or youth participate in an adapted RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation) process. Important parts of this process are regular Sunday Mass participation, peer-group classes, special sacrament preparation sessions, and home conversations and prayer.
