Religious Education for Children

Cathedral Sacramental Preparation 2024-2025

The Cathedral Parish will offer classes again this coming year for children who need to prepare for the sacraments of Reconciliation, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation. 

Please remember – This is NOT a full religious education program.

Your child may attend these classes whether he or she is attending a Catholic school in the Archdiocese, is in a religious education program at another parish, is NOT in religious education, or is in a home-based program.

There will be a section of each class for primarily English-speaking children/families, and another for primarily Spanish-speaking children/families.

Children coming for First Holy Communion preparation will be prepared for the Sacrament of Penance during the fall; after New Year classes will focus on the Holy Eucharist and specific preparation for First Holy Communion.  Confirmation preparation will follow the same schedule.
