GROWING DISCIPLES track
Year 2 in our First Communion/Confirmation Sac Prep
During this year, your child will continue to develop a heart for God and grow in Christian habits as they prepare to receive the Sacraments of Confirmation and Communion this Spring.
This year, we will use a new digital-based curriculum to ensure quality formation across both our in-person and at-home programs.
Our at-home model allows families the flexibility of their child completing assignments at any time during the week from the comfort of their home.
Our in-person class will be held Wednesdays at 6:15pm and gives students a structured place and time to complete their assignments with catechist supervision and support. Due to social distancing constraints, a limited number of spots are available. Please indicate your preference when registering. Spots will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis.
Registration open through 10/31/2020 9:59 PM Mountain Time (US & Canada)
***Please login or create account prior to registering through the
Listing of Events page, found on the upper right hand corner - THANKS!
Our program begins the week of September 21st. Parents are asked to attend an information and orientation meeting Monday, September 15th via Zoom. If this date does not work for you please contact Adrienne Merritt after you register.
Family Nights - Parents are asked to participate in their child's faith journey in a special way. During these sessions, families will have an opportunity to explore the faith together through activities and lessons. No preparation is necessary, just show up with your child(ren) and enjoy!
All Sacramental prep families (whether doing the in-person or at-home model) are asked to attend these in-person events periodically throughout the year. Alternative and online family nights will be offered. If you are not comfortable attending in-person events, please speak with Adrienne to make alternative arrangements ahead of time.
Eucharist and Confirmation Day Retreats
Students and at least one parent will be asked to attend 2 day retreats during this year. The first day retreat will focus on the Eucharist and is tentatively scheduled for January 23. The second retreat will focus on Confirmation and is tentatively scheduled for March. If you are unable or not comfortable attending in-person please speak with Adrienne or Lupe to make alternative arrangements ahead of time. While we are happy to offer alternative means of preparation, please note that, per canon law, the Sacrament itself cannot be done remotely or digitally.
Registration is $75* for Immaculate Heart of Mary families
Registration is $125* for families from another Parish
*A $10 late fee will be assessed to each participant who is registered after September 15th due to increased administrative needs
If you are in need of financial assistance, please contact Rachel Padilla at firstname.lastname@example.org - We never want financial need to stand in the way of students participating in our programs!
It would be a blessing to help your child receive the grace of the Sacraments, however, if you are from another parish please consider attending your own parish for Sacramental Prep.
