Sacramental preparation is an integral part of the curriculum for children making their First Communion. Students must have completed two full consecutive years of classes either at a Catholic school or by taking Religious Ed before celebrating their First Communion and First Reconciliation.
First grade is considered the first year of preparation for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion, and second grade is the second year of sacramental prep. Current second graders will receive First Reconciliation and First Communion in the spring of 2019 if they have completed two years of classes. Some third graders who attended Religious Ed for the first time last year will also make their First Communion.
The Religious Education program begins in September and concludes in May. Classes for the 2018-2019 school year are held on Sunday mornings from 8:30-9:45 am.
The Sacrament of First Communion will be held on Saturday, May 11 at 10:00 am. Children making their Communion should be brought to the NCA cafeteria by 9:30 am. A rehearsal for the event will be held on Wednesday, May 8 at 6:30 pm in Church.
