Children’s Sacramental Preparation, 2nd - 8th grade: information
Dear families, Welcome to our program of sacramental preparation for children. St. Edwin parish gladly receives families who find fulfillment in belonging to a local Catholic-Christian community, look forward each Sunday to the celebration of the Eucharist, and seek to be formed in the faith we hold dear. The goal of our program is full integration into the life of a local parish family, crowned by the reception of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. This program is designed for children age seven (second grade) through middle school. As a result, our program is fourfold: 1) Weekly Classes under the direction of our dedicated catechists. 2) Sunday Mass, even in the summer season when we do not have classes. Participation in the Eucharist forms the foundation of our program and all that we do here as a parish.* 3) “Learning,” which includes knowing the prayers and other important components of our faith. 4) Participation by the parents in our spring and fall festivals, and the December New Mexico Posada. It is a great way to get to know the other parishioners. The time of preparation is just under two years. The children will receive their sacraments during the Easter season of the second year. The program begins this year on September 8, 2021. Children’s classes are held Wednesdays, from 4:30pm to 6:30pm. You can see the various dates as well as vacations on the “Master Calendar” of this site. We invite you to refer to it often! You can apply any time at the office. Once you get the ok from us you can start the enrollment process using our new online form here. You can find a list of the documents to gather for the office here. We ask only a small, non-refundable fee for processing your information. Stop by; we look forward to seeing you! *To successfully complete our program, parents with their children must be committed to regularly attending Sunday Mass.
