First Communion and First Reconciliation

Our Sacramental Prep (First Reconciliation & First Communion) program is a two year process that begins in first grade and completes in second grade. We also have class options for those beginning their First Communion journey post first/second grade.

STAR Program - First Communion preparation for students in 3rd-6th grades

At St. Thérèse of Carmel we also offer first communion preparation for students past second grade. If your child is beginning their journey with the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Eucharist at an older age they are able to be registered in our STAR program (Scripture, Tradition, and Rites) where they will learn about the faith with other students their age and who are at the same place in their faith journey as they are.

 

Their first year enrolled in our Faith Formation program will be with their regular academic grade, and then in their second year of preparation (the year they receive the sacrament) they will sign up for STAR.
