Families gather together for group prayer with the Director. Parents stay with the leader for catechetical preparation, while children attend class with catechists to complete the first session of the month. Parents are given materials each month to catechize their children at home using parent-friendly materials. They return for another group meeting the following month to prepare for the next unit and the children are tested over what they have learned.

Sacramental Preparation
First Reconciliation and First Communion A child needs to have completed 1st grade religion class (PSR, full time school or home school), in order to be placed in 2nd grade PSR. Parents of children preparing for their sacraments should be attending weekly Saturday evening or Sunday morning Mass with their children and teaching them their prayers. Children who are in 2nd grade but have not completed the first grade materials will need to speak to the Director to determine if they can catch up over the summer. Children in 3rd grade or above will be place in their grade level for the first year and then be place in a sacramental prep class in their second year of PSR.
Confirmation preparation is a two year program beginning in 7th grade. Students who have not completed any of the grades leading to 8th grade will need to speak to the Director to determine their knowledge and where they will be placed in class.
