Restored Order of the Sacraments of Initiation
Archbishop Aquila has made the decision to restore the order of the Sacraments of Initiation to their original order: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. “This will make available every sacramental grace the Church has to offer to children who have reached the age of reason.” For more information on this, please visit http://archden.org/saints/ .
Here at St. Jude we will proceed this year (2016-17 school year) by beginning with Year 1 of Sacramental Preparation for 2nd graders who will prepare for and receive the sacrament of reconciliation in the spring of 2017. The following year, those students will continue with Year 2 of Sacramental Preparation and prepare for and receive the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist in the same Mass in the spring of 2018.
For the 2016-17 school year, we will not have a First Communion class.
Baptized children should register for their appropriate grade level class each year (based on the Colorado public schools cut-off date of October 1.) If your child has not yet been baptized, please contact Brenda Maxwell at 303-988-6435 x 18 or email@example.com.
