Diocesan policy calls for the involvement of parents in preparing their children for the sacraments. We believe young children build their values and attitudes largely through a process of identification with those adults in their lives who mean something to them. For this reason, parents are the best teachers of their children at this time. They fulfill a role that no other person or religious education program can really perform. Preparing their child/teen for the celebration of a sacrament is the right and mission of the parent. To assist the parents in their mission of preparing their child/teen, there will be a meeting to explain the program and what is expected of them. The child/teen will attend religious education or Catholic school, plus extra sessions set aside just for the sacrament they are preparing for.
