Children prepare for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist through a two-year process at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church. Holy Family students must have attended at least one year of education at a Catholic School or at a parish faith formation before beginning preparation in 2nd grade or higher. Students from other schools need to enroll in Immaculate Heart of Mary’s Children’s Faith Formation Religious Education in first grade. They enroll in Sacramental Preparation in 2nd grade or higher, after completing one year of Children’s Faith Formation Religious Education. Our diocesan guidelines require parents and children to be prepared together in their parish community.
Children need to be in class for a complete year prior to participating in sacramental preparation, either attending Holy Family School or IHM Faith Formation classes.
Sacramental Preparation for “Reconciliation and First Holy Communion” will begin on Tuesday evening 6:00-7:00 pm. October 3rd. Parents of children going into Sacramental Preparation please call to set up an appointment prior to registering your child. Our diocese requires a two year preparation period for your children and family. Call Irene Fritzler, our Sacramental Preparation Minister, at 970-242-6121. She is available to discuss with you the process of sacramental preparation for your children. You can also contact the parish office for additional information Monday-Friday from 9AM to noon and 1PM to 5PM at 970-242-6121.
