Reconciliation and Communion
In addition to their learning in a catechetical setting (religious education program, catholic school, home schooling), children preparing for these sacraments are expected to participate in proximate preparation activities. This includes two Saturday retreats, one for each sacrament.
In accordance with the policy of the Diocese of Trenton, proximate (immediate) sacramental formation for Confirmation will occur predominately outside of the traditional religious education/classroom model that the Candidates have been participating in for most of their lives. In addition, all Candidates will receive proximate formation together as a larger parish community. Information Sheet
