About our programs


We typically prepare children to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation (Confession) and the Eucharist (First Communion) around age 7 or 8 (Grade 2 or later).
Reconciliation preparation starts in the fall, followed by preparation for First Communion in the winter.
We now prepare youth to receive the sacrament of Confirmation around age 11 (Grade 6).
Read Bishop Mark's July 2020 letter: Age of the Sacrament of Confirmation (PDF)In previous years children had received Confirmation at the same time as their First Communion.Registration for Confirmation will begin sometime in the fall.
