Sacramental Preparation — Reconciliation & Eucharist
In order to prepare our children to receive their 1st Reconciliation and 1st Eucharist, we use a 2-year preparation approach at Saint Serra. At the end of their first year of preparation, students receive their 1st Reconciliation and at the end of the 2nd year they receive their 1st Eucharist. They can start the program anytime after 1st grade and we do have different curriculum for younger grades and older grades. Once they have completed their 2-year sacramental preparation studies and have received both sacraments, they can be enrolled in continuing religious education studies at their current grade level until they finish 8th grade. They can then begin sacramental preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation.

The Go Seek Find: Discovering God's Treasure" (St. Mary's Press) curriculum is used for sacramental prep grades 1-3 and the Home Resource Guides for this program can be downloaded below.
