Eucharist and Reconciliation
Staff Contact: Theresa Anderson,
As children grow and begin to better understand their faith, they will encounter new opportunities and new challenges. The sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist are primary ways that we as a church support our children in growing in their faith. At Saint Katharine’s we have a unified process that prepares children for celebrating their First Reconciliation and then their First Eucharist. The preparation process is one of mutual support between the parish and the family. We recognize and affirm the primary role parents have in the faith formation and sacramental preparation of their children. Preparation for these sacraments is not attached to a particular age or grade but instead discerned by readiness.
One year of Faith Formation or attendance at an Archdiocesan Catholic School the year prior to enrolling for Sacramental Preparation is required.
