Sacramental Preparation Newsletter

How do I know if my child is ready for Reconciliation and Eucharist?

Preparation for the Sacraments becomes a focus for a family when the parents and the child discern they are ready to begin Immediate Preparation. 

Children who have attained the age of reason (7 years or older) who experiences: 

  • Daily family prayer
  • Parents as a model of faith and love
  • Education in living the virtues
  • Attending Sunday Mass each week
  • A prior year of faith formation through the parish or a Catholic School

A child who experiences this type of family formation in the home, will have a burning desire to receive Jesus in the Eucharist. 

Families seeking Sacraments for their child must be enrolled in our Family Faith Guide ministry. Immediate formation at the parish will occur starting in January 2021. Spend the next few months praying about readiness and then contact Elizabeth Lyons at for an interview.
