Teen Sacramental Prep | Preparación sacramental para adolescentes

Teen Sacramental prep is offered for anyone in middle or high school who is interested in preparing for the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, and Eucharist.

Preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation is a separate preparation. For more information on preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation click here.

They are held on Sunday afternoons from 1:30-3pm in English and Spanish on October 8, December 3, 2023 for First Reconciliation and on February 11 and April 21, 2024 for First Communion. Parents who have a child preparing for baptism will call Maria in the Parish office to learn about class times for students, parents and godparents.
