Sacrament Preparation

Sacrament Preparation

Preparation for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist, and preparation for Confirmation take place concurrently with the grade level curriculum in both the after school Religious Education Program and in St. Hugo School.  Normally, these sacraments take place as part of the 2nd Grade and 8th Grade curriculum, respectively, but when a sacrament has been delayed, the RE staff is happy to work with the student to prepare them appropriately. A portion of the sacrament preparation takes place at home and requires the participation of parents and other family members.  A service requirement is part of the preparation for both sacraments.

Click here for the Sacrament Preparation Meeting Schedule.  It is also available in the Religious Education Office.  Attendance at these meetings is a requirement for both parents and children.

Sacrament Preparation for Children attending Catholic Schools other than St. Hugo School

Students who attend a Catholic school other than St. Hugo School are still expected to celebrate the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist and Confirmation at St. Hugo, their home parish.  We welcome these students and look forward each year to having them join with the Religious Education and St. Hugo School students in the preparation for, and celebration of, these sacraments.  We ask that parents do the following:

  • Register your child for the sacrament through the Religious Education Office; we coordinate the Sacrament Preparation program for the entire parish.
  • Plan on attending the meetings WITH YOUR CHILD that relate to either 2nd or 8th grade.  Please refer to the Sacrament Preparation Meeting Schedule.
  • Work together with your child at home to complete the sacrament preparation materials that we will provide.
  • Bring your child to one to two practices in church prior to First Eucharist or Confirmation.
