Religious Enhancements

Sacraments

Religion is taught in each classroom.  Students plan and participate in liturgy and prayer services.  Sacramental preparation is a parish responsibility and is coordinated with the parish Religious Education Administrator.

The following are various religious specials that occur throughout the school year:

  • First Reconciliation – Children who have the desire and readiness are welcome to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  Sacramental preparation is offered to all 2nd graders, but not celebrated until parental permission determines that the student is fully prepared for the celebration of the sacrament.
  • First Communion (First Eucharist) – Children who are to be raised in the Catholic tradition and have the desire and readiness are welcome to celebrate their First Communion.  Parent sessions are scheduled to discuss the preparation process, theology of Eucharist and home program.  Fees and parent meeting schedules will be published in the Knight News. First Eucharist Liturgies will be celebrated at a Parish Liturgy after Easter.  
  • Pray the Rosary – May
  • Stations of the Cross
  • Prayer Room
  • Reconciliation – Lent & Advent

School Liturgy
