Confirmation 2012 Photos
With the Sacrament of Confirmation one continues his/her commitment to our Lord’s community, the Church, that began at Baptism. Just as Baptism is a personal Easter for Christians who die with Christ in the baptismal waters in order to rise with Him, Confirmation is a personal Pentecost in which the presence of God’s life-giving Spirit empowers Christians to witness to Christ.
Preparation for Confirmation is a multi-dimensional process of spiritual reflection, soul-searching, and faith-sharing in order to ready one’s heart for the strengthening grace of the Holy Spirit. Confirmation is a commitment to follow Jesus’ way of life by participating fully in the sacramental life of the Church, serving the community, and continuing to deepen one’s faith. For this reason, our program combines various techniques to facilitate this process such as prayerful classroom discussion and reflection, home study, service projects, Eucharistic celebrations, liturgical rites, a sponsor/candidate event, and a day-long retreat.

First Eucharist 2012 Photos
The Eucharist is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist). Sharing in the Eucharist for the first time involves entry into a new phase in a person’s faith journey in which s/he enters more deeply into relationship with God and the Catholic Christian Community. Initiation into the Catholic Church in this respect, entails taking on more deeply a Catholic identity of discipleship in Christ. In fact, it means embracing more significantly a life lived in imitation of Christ in conjunction with the whole Catholic Christian Community which is the Body of Christ.
Because the Office of Religious Education fully recognizes parents as the primary educators of their children, it embraces their role in the educational process and provides a format for parental involvement in the Sacramental Preparation Process. In this regard the First Eucharist Program incorporates a multi-dimensional approach to Sacramental Preparation that includes an emphasis on parent catechesis with a view toward parent - child interactive learning, and total family participation.
