There is a separate Family Formation program for those preparing for the sacraments of first Reconciliation and first Holy Communion. Students in our program (typically second graders), meet at the same classroom time as regular Family Formation students. Instead of learning about the topic of the month, they are on a separate track, concentrating on their preparation for one of these sacraments. Each sacramental prep student purchases a Family Formation workbook containing Home Lessons to do with their parents the other three weeks each month. They prepare for their first Reconciliation during the fall semester and, after receiving that sacrament, they prepare for first Holy Communion in the spring.
