SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION

Visit our dedicated First Communion/Sacraments page by clicking HERE
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..  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!

HOME SCHOOL RELIGIOUS EDUCATION
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.  To utilize this option, please contact program director, Jenny Kiehl, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for information.

 

PAROCHIAL/CATHOLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS
If your child is enrolled in an Archdiocesan Catholic School in the greater Atlanta area and wishes to receive their sacraments, they must do so at their church of registration. To register your child to receive their sacraments, please go to our registration website by clicking HERE, and select the Parochial/Catholic School Student option or register for a regular LAUNCH class. Students can use their Catholic School Religious Education in lieu of LAUNCH classes, but must attend 2 workshops on October 28th and March 24th, in addition to any sacramental dates and rehearsals.
A baptismal certificate is also required to be turned in to complete your child's registration for this program.
