CELEBRATING THE SACRAMENTS together is one of the extraordinary experiences of a Catholic school. Reconciliation, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation bring a deeper connection when shared with classmates and friends. All Catholic and non-Catholic students are encouraged to play an active role in the Sacrament preparations. Non-Catholic students are not required to make the sacraments but are encouraged to be companions in faith to their classmates.
2nd GRADE RECONCILIATION & FIRST COMMUNION
The 2nd-grade year centers around preparing for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion. Partnering with families to enrich the understanding and appreciation of their child’s faith and spirituality, preparations take place in the home, classroom, and Church It is a beautiful and wonderful time to watch the students blossom and grow in their faith.
8th GRADE CONFIRMATION
The journey toward Confirmation is a multi-year process for our junior high students. Working with their religion teacher, parents/guardians, and Director of Faith Formation, students are encouraged to see Jesus in their present and future lives. We want our students to willingly embrace their spiritual views and take an active role in renewing the Church. Service work, attending the Archdiocese of Chicago Holy Fire Event, and student retreats all deepen the student’s understanding and commitment to faith before they choose to make their Confirmation during the winter of their 8th-grade year.
