Our faith formation program is responsible for sacramental preparation for Reconciliation and Communion, typically takes place in 2nd grade. Confirmation is a two-year program for grades 9th and 10th, along with Rites for Christian Initiation for Children. It's a privilege and joy to journey with you and your child(ren).

Please pray for all our young people and their families who will be celebrating the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time. May we be bold in trusting God’s mercy and seek His forgiveness when we fail to love God and others.  The Good Shepherd is always waiting.
