Sacramental Preparation Information

Registration is currently closed for the 2017/2018 year. Please check back for upcoming registrations.

Children in the second grade who have completed one year of religious education immediately prior to their year of sacramental preparation, with a minimum of 75% attendance at either the parish or parochial school, are invited to prepare for the sacrament of first reconciliation. In accordance with church guidelines, children prepare for Reconciliation before first Eucharist. Second graders who have made their first Reconciliation will be eligible to prepare to receive first Communion.

If your child(ren) is not already enrolled in Holy Family’s Parish School of Religion (and your child is not attending St. Charles School), you will need to register into a PSR class in order for your child(ren) to receive their sacraments.
