Children's Religious Education
The mission of the Children's Ministry is to eagerly assist families in teaching God’s love. We do this through Catholic teaching traditions of faith, prayer, sacramental preparation and forming a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
- Bring daily prayer into the lives of the children
- Teach respect for all God’s creations
- Prepare the children to live God’s call of glory in their daily lives
- Welcome all children into our community of faith

Sacramental Preparations – Sacramental preparations begin at the age of discretion (usually 7 years old). The parish along with the parents will prepare children to receive First Reconciliation and Eucharist. A formation period of two years must be completed for a sufficient knowledge to understand the mystery of Christ and receive the Eucharist with faith and devotion.
A Parent Reconcilatiion/Confession Handbook is available upon request, this handbook contains information to enable the adult parent to hand on correct information on the Sacrament of Reconcilation to the child.
Non-baptized and uncatachized children of catechetical age will join the faith journey of RCIA.
