Sacraments are vital expressions of who we are as Catholic Christians. Each time we receive a sacrament we respond in a deeper way to Jesus' call to discipleship. Since sacraments are so important to us, we take them very seriously and prepare to receive them thoughtfully and thoroughly.
Sacramental prep is separate and distinct from faith formation. Children should be enrolled in BOTH faith formation (or attend Catholic School) AND their Sacramental Prep class. It is expected that all parishioners enroll children in Faith Formation when they enter 1st Grade.
All sacraments are community events, and this is reflected in the preparation and celebration of the sacraments at The Church of the Annunciation. Sacramental Prep is for Annunciation Parishioners only, exceptions made by request and with agreement of your home parish.
Before July 1st registration is free for parishioners.
After July 1st registration is $15 for parishioners.
