The first step in preparing for the sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion, or Confirmation is on-going formation in the Catholic faith either through weekly, Wednesday evening Faith Formation classes or through enrollment at St. John the Baptist School, a Catholic high school, or a homeschooling curriculum.
The next step is to register for our sacramental preparation program, which accomplished together as a parish. Through prayer, education, and service experiences, children and youth learn specifically about the sacraments as they grow as Catholics living their faith in the world with hearts set toward eternity.
