Who should register?
Typically, Catholic children prepare and receive 1st Reconciliation and 1st Holy Communion in Grade 2. All parish children who are Catholic in Grade 2 should register for this sacramental preparation, including students from St. Mary’s School, St. Mary’s Parish School of Religion, St. Mary’s parishioners attending another Catholic school, and home-schooled 2nd graders.
What if my child is past Grade 2 but has not received these sacraments?
Contact the Parish Coordinator of Religious Education at 301-627-3255 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if my child is not Catholic: If your child is not Catholic, he or she is not required to register for this preparation program, since he or she is not eligible to receive these sacraments. If you are interested in your child becoming Catholic, please contact the Parish Coordinator for Religious Education at email@example.com or 301-627-3255.
What is required during sacramental preparation? In addition to preparation in the classroom, all students preparing for these sacraments are required to participate in two retreats. At least one parent or guardian is required to attend with the student. Parents are also expected to provide support and reinforcement for their child’s formation at home.
