Sacrament Preparation

The preparation of children for the reception of the sacraments is based on the belief that parents are the primary teachers of their children. Therefore, the involvement of parents is very important.

First Reconciliation is celebrated in November. There is a one-parent session in preparing for the sacrament. Second grade children are prepared as part of their curriculum.

First Eucharist is celebrated in May. There is one parent meeting, one meeting with parents and children and Bread Baking Day prior to the celebration. Second grade children are prepared as part of their curriculum.

Confirmation is celebrated in the early spring. Candidates are all eighth grade students of the parish. All candidates take part in a six-week preparation program involving their sponsors; Seventh grade students begin to prepare for the Sacrament by performing their service hours.

These programs include all of the children of St. Pius X Parish in our school, public school or other private schools.
