Religious Education for Children

Cathedral Sacramental Preparation 2022-2023

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.  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.

The schedule for 2022-2023 will be out very soon!  Classes for the English-speaking section will start on October.  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.

 More information will be on this website very soon, along with registration forms!  Please stay tuned!

The Sacrament of Confirmation for school age children will be on Sunday, April 16, 2023 at the 11:00 AM Solemn Mass. Bishop Joseph Coffey will administer the Sacrament.

First Holy Communion will be on Sunday, May 7, 2023 at the 11:00 AM Solemn Mass.
