Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton offers Sacramental Preparation programs to better prepare the students and families to receive these sacraments of Penance, Eucharist, and Confirmation. The sacraments of Penance and Eucharist are received during a child’s 2nd grade year, and the sacrament of Confirmation, in the Diocese of Arlington, is received during a child’s 8th grade year. For those interested in the sacrament of Confirmation as an adult, please visit our
Adult Confirmation page for more information.
