Time Committment Required for Preparation: Preparation is required for these sacraments. The best way you can prepare your child for this sacrament is in modling the practice of your faith to your child especially by attending Mass with us on Sundays. We invite you to join us at either 5:00pm at St. Francis Xavier on Saturdays or 8:30am at St. Peter's or 10:00am at St. Francis Xavier on Sundays. Childrens programing is available during the Sunday liturgies and those making their sacraments are reccomended to participate in this program.
In addition to regular Sunday Mass participation preparation will include a combination of school based preparation (if it is an area school) and parish based preparation. For children not in our Catholic Schools additional preparation will be required.
