A copy of child’s Baptismal Certificate is required upon registration.

These sacraments will be celebrated in second grade. All students, third grade and above, who have not received the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion and have met the Sacramental requirements will be enrolled in a sacramental class upon request.

Please remember that Reconciliation must precede the reception of First Holy Communion.
