Children’s Sacramental Preparation, 2nd - 8th grade; class for pre-k through 1st grade
Dear families, St. Edwin welcomes parents and children 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 one or more of the Sacraments of Initiation and Reconciliation. As a result our program is fourfold: 1) Weekly Wednesday Class 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 outdoor spring and fall festivals, and the December New Mexico Posada. It is a great way to get to know the other parishioners.  Children age seven (second grade) through middle school have class Wednesday afternoon from 4:30pm to 6:30pm.  Two years is the time of preparation for First Holy Communion. The children will make their First Reconciliation towards the end of the second year.  We start each year the second week of September. You can see the various dates as well as vacations on the “Master Calendar” of this site. Refer to it often! For more information feel free to call or visit our office.          *Parents who do not attend Sunday Mass on a weekly basis with their children will not do well in our program.
During the Covid restrictions we are live streaming classes, which are a bit shorter. As for Mass, although we are open to 25% capacity, families may opt to listen to Mass from the safety of their cars on the radio, parked around the church. We will keep you updated regarding our Festivals and other events.

We hope to resume pre-k through 1st grade classes next year.
