Children in Grade 2 and up may be prepared for the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist. There will be 3 aspects to their preparation.
Older children who have not yet received the sacraments of Reconciliation or Eucharist are invited to do so, using approved age-appropriate materials that they study at home under the supervision of their parents or another Catholic family member or guardian. Please make your request to the Faith Formation department.
Calendar coming soon!
The sacrament of Confirmation is not connected to a specific grade level. Instead, Confirmation preparation is offered to candidates who have a desire to be confirmed and an intent to continue on their Catholic faith journey after Confirmation.
Confirmation Preparation will involve 4 sessions that will be held on Sundays throughout the year. These sessions will only focus on the sacrament of Confirmation and parents will be required to attend a few of them. Our Confirmation prep sessions will be held on different nights than our HOPE nights, which is our monthly Faith Formation program for high school teens, so that teens can participate in both events. Two sessions will be held at HMC in Oregon and two at St. Ann in Stoughton.
We will offer Confirmation every year for high school students and adults, so they can choose to prepare/receive the sacrament whenever they feel called to celebrate this sacrament.
