Glorifying the Lord With Our Lives

First Reconciliation &
First Communion

Preparation is a two-year process for children who typically receive these sacraments in grade 2. However, children must have been in faith formation or attending Assumption Catholic School the year preceding their sacramental year.  Please assure that your child is registered in our Whole Community Catechesis program (replacing K-5 faith formation classes) before second grade.
