As directed by the Archdiocese of Atlanta, sacramental prep must be completed at your church of registration. You can click on the following link to register in our parish.   Register HERE

Sacramental Preparation for 1st & 2nd grades: 1st & 2nd Grades Sacramental preparation is a two year religious education process. The first year religious preparation needs to be completed in order to receive Reconciliation and First Communion in the second year. If your child is entering Second grade with NO religious education you will need to register them as a first grade student.

Sacramental Preparation for Students in 3rd -8th Grades:
3rd through 8th grade students coming into the Catholic Church needing Baptism and First Eucharist will register for the RCIC, Sunday 8:45am class

If your child is in the 3rd through 8th grade and has received Baptism but still needs First Communion, please contact Jackie Kmet at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to help get them on the right track.  Students and parents for this group will need to attend 4 mandatory workshops to meet requirements for the sacraments.  We are here to help you get them on track!


If your child is in the 3rd through 5th grade, has already received First Communion, and cannot attend our Religious Education classes, we offer the option to complete the material and teach your child at home.  You will need to register online and choose the homeschool option.  You will receive an email letting you know when you can stop in to pick up your teaching material.  There are a total of 4 units for the year.  You will need to stop in to pick up the material before each unit.  There will also be an assessment component to complete for each unit to give your child credit for the completion of the Home School program.  Please contact Jennifer Vasquez at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have any questions.
