First Sacraments

IMG_0383web2 St. Edward’s offers the sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation (Penance) for 2nd graders. We welcome our children to the table of the Lord in a family-friendly process. For both Sacraments, 2nd graders will prepare during their Faith Formation Wednesday night classes and opportunities will also be provided to continue to conversations at home.

Requirements

    • Children must be baptized. If the baptism did not take place at St. Edwards a copy of the baptism certificate is required.
    • Children must be registered in the Faith Formation program. You can find the online registration here. You will need to fill out both the Faith Formation Registration as well as the Sacraments registration. Please note there is no additional cost for the Sacraments.
