Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get my child baptized?

Your child must be enrolled in our EDGE Middle School Program. They must attend classes every week. The child and one parent must attend the October 5 Reconciliation Retreat which will include a Baptism prep session. After the Oct. 5 Retreat, you must call Marla in the office to schedule an appointment to fill out a Baptism enrollment form and set a date for a private Baptism. Learn More

How do I get my child to receive First Reconciliation and First Communion?

Your child must be enrolled and have excellent attendance for TWO years in our EDGE Middle School Program. A Baptismal Certificate must be turned in with your EDGE application. In their second year of preparation, they must attend a First Reconciliation Retreat in the Fall and a First Communion Retreat in the Spring. They will also receive both sacraments in their 2nd year of preparation.

Is attendance mandatory?

Attendance is mandatory for those who are in Sacramental prep for either Baptism or First Communion. For a teen to receive a full year of religious education they cannot miss more than 3 sessions a year.

Does this count towards the mandatory 2 year Confirmation preparation?

EDGE provides a much needed foundation in their religious education; however, completing a year in EDGE will not count as a year for their Confirmation preparation. They still have to complete two years of religious education in High School to complete Confirmation preparation.

How can I help the EDGE program?

You can help in a number of ways as a Small Group Leader, Set-Up, or Chaperones and Drivers. Learn More
