Children’s Religious Education

First Holy Communion & First Reconciliation

The heart of our mission is to prepare students for a meaningful participation in the sacraments of First Holy Communion and First Reconciliation. Our students receive these important Sacraments after two year for preparation. Our program runs from September to May, we offer class both is English and Spanish. We are dedicated in helping these children built a strong Faith foundation. We are dedicated in partnering with parents to provide children with basic religious instruction and spiritual mentoring. Our program encourages students to remain actively involved with their Church throughout their life. We teach children, inform parents, and act as role models of our Catholic faith. We enroll students starting from 1st grade and offer Faith Formation classes up to 5th grade.
