Sacraments

St. Peter the Apostle supports families in the preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation through prayer, supportive instruction during religion classes, and offering experiences of these Sacraments once they are received.

Jesus said: “I am the living bread that came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; . . . he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life and . . . abides in me, and I in him” -Jn 6:51, 54, 56

First Penance and First Holy Communion

Therefore, it is most important that children are prepared properly to better understand the importance of the Eucharist in our lives. The children prepare for this sacrament by participating in Religious Education through CCD or Catholic school. The preparations begin in first grade. First Holy Communion is received in the second grade.
