The Sacramental Preparation program for Holy Eucharist begins in the 2nd grade year, after the reception of the sacrament of Penance.

Parents are the primary teachers of their children and Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish tries to provide opportunities for the parents to reflect upon their role, as well as give helpful hints to make this a more meaningful family experience as the students journey to receive the sacrament of Penance for the first time.

The Director of Faith Formation, along with Father Bashista, Father Dort, Deacon Rob, and the Faith Formation Secretary are here to support the parents and families during this process.

The Preparation Program for Eucharist kicks off with a Parent Enrichment Meeting and our first preparation class where the parents learn more about this amazing sacrament and receive the important details and dates. The parents and students will also attend 2 additional meetings to deepen their understanding of the Eucharist. The students and parents will also need to attend the Holy Eucharist Practice (usually at the end of April) to go over how the First Holy Eucharist Mass will run, etc. Finally, the students will receive the sacrament of Holy Eucharist for the first time in May.

** The meetings and practices are mandatory for at least one parent to attend with their students; but of course, both parents are welcome! **

Please contact the Faith Formation office to have your child added to the list for the 2021-2022 Holy Eucharist Preparation program.
