Sacramental Preparation

Sacramental preparation classes help those interested in the Catholic faith to prepare for the reception of the sacraments, including Baptism, Reconciliation, the Eucharist, Confirmation, and Holy Matrimony.

For the younger members of our parish, there are baptism preparation classes for the parents and godparents of children about to be baptized, and preparation classes for first and second graders who will receive First Reconciliation and the Eucharist. At the seventh and eighth grade levels, classes prepare students for the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation.

Adults seeking to complete their sacraments or who are seeking to join the Church can attend RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation) sessions. Classes are also available for adult Catholics who have not yet received the sacrament of Confirmation.

Finally, preparation sessions are required for those adults who are seeking to be married in the Church.

Those seeking information about the preparation of children for the sacraments of Reconciliation, the Eucharist and Confirmation should contact Religious Education Director Donna Stachulski at Those wishing to arrange for the Baptism of a child, or for sacramental preparation of converts seeking to enter the Church should contact Pastoral Associate Deacon Dan Gonos at
