Preparation for the sacraments is built on a gradual understanding of the child’s relationship with Jesus. The 1st and 2nd grade PSR prepare the children for First Reconciliation and First Communion. Because Edge is based on a three-year catechetical cycle, Confirmation preparation is included throughout 6th, 7th and 8th grade. Students who attend Catholic Schools receive most of their sacrament preparation in school but will participate in some additional classes. Both sacraments require additional meetings and activities throughout the year, and these expectations are addressed and explained during informational meetings held in September.
