The Restored Order of the Sacraments promulgated by Vatican Council II, is Baptism, Reconciliation, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist at the age of reason (3rd grade). This restored order recognizes that sharing in the Holy Eucharist completes our Initiation into the Church. Curé d’Ars will have this in full swing for all 3rd Graders in September of 2017.
Sacramental preparation classes for these sacraments are held in addition to the religious education sessions held on the second, third, and fourth Sunday of the month from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m.
Candidates must participate with consistent attendance in worship and Religious Education or Youth Ministry in the year prior to receiving the sacrament as well as the year in which they receive the sacrament. Special classes are held several weeks prior to the celebration of the sacrament. Pending research, RCL Benziger Program for Confirmation is currently being used.
