The Church has long held that parents/guardians are the primary educators of their children. Parents, with the support of the pastor and the Faith Formation team, are responsible for preparing their children for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and Confirmation & First Communion in the Restored Order. This is a time of obvious growth in faith for children, but also an opportunity for parents to renew and deepen their personal faith as they engage in this process with their children.
Don’t worry, we won’t leave you on your own! During the mandatory parent meetings, we will offer some basic sacramental understanding as well as resources and experiential rituals to guide your child through the sacramental preparation. We also believe that our daily family life experiences are the basis for sacramental formation – we experience the graces of the Sacraments as part of the “domestic church”.
