Sacraments

Preparing for the Sacraments are significant spiritual milestones that students experience alongside their classmates. Parents are included in preparing their children for reception of the Sacraments through adult education evenings.

Sacred Heart School students in 2nd grade prepare for and receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist during the school year.

Students in 7th grade prepare for and receive the Sacrament of Confirmation during the school year.

Practicing Catholic students who have received their First Communion may receive Eucharist during school Masses. Catholics and non-Catholics who are not prepared to receive communion are encouraged to come forward for a blessing.

Opportunities for the Sacrament of Reconciliation are offered to students at the beginning of each school year, during Advent, during Lent, and at the end of the school year. All students are encouraged to participate; non-Catholics will receive a blessing.

All students who receive Sacraments must be baptized Catholic and be members of the Catholic faith.
