Sarcramental Preperation

First Penance/Reconciliation

First Reconciliation preparation will take place in the 2nd grade class room. We will announce the date of First Reconciliation as soon as we finalize our calendar. If you have any questoins please contact the Fatih Formation Office. 

Reconciliation will be offered during Faith Formation Class during the seasons of Advent and Lent. All other grades will be invited to celebrate the sacrament at this time.

First Communion

Catholic children in Grade 2 of St. Stephen's School or the Faith Formation program with consistent attendance are automatically enrolled in the sacramental preparation process for First Communion. There is no need for a separate registration form. First Communion is typically held on the first Sunday in May, but due to the renovation of our church, the date for First Communion is still being determined.

Parent Resources

The link above will connect you to a special resource that will help continue the discussion of what your child talks about at Faith Formation into your home. They have weekly activities and seasonal ones. While the Catholic Church teaches that prents are the number one Catechists to their children, we do not expect you to do it all on your own. This is a great place to start to inspire more conversations about the Catholic Faith in your home.

Registering for the Faith Formation Program

Registration for the 2019-2020 Faith Formation year is now open!  Every registered family in our parish with a child preschool age to high school and who are not enrolled in Catholic Schools were emailed a pre-filled registration form and schedule for the year in the beginning of August.
