The following must precede the reception of a Sacrament:
Youth who have actively attended two (2) consecutive years of a formal religious faith formation catechetical program and who regularly attend weekend Mass and live their faith are invited to participate in Sacramental Preparation classes for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion, Confirmation. These classes will be held at OLGC on certain Sunday afternoons (calendar is not yet completed).
If your child was not in a catholic religion program last year, then your child needs to attend two consecutive years before he/she is eligible to receive Sacraments.
Volunteers and Teachers and assistant teachers are always needed.
Classes are Monday 6:30 – 7:45 pm; 22 sessions
This includes seven (7) Family Sessions 6:00 – 7:45 PM.
