Sacramental Preparation in the Parish

The Parish is the central community of faith expressed and lived out by the believing and worshiping faithful. All sacraments, especially Sacraments of Initiation, rightfully are celebrated within the context of the parish. All persons whether enrolled in a parish faith formation process, a Catholic school or a home-based catechetical process are expected to be prepared for and celebrate sacraments in the parish to which they belong and where they worship on weekends. Please be aware of the parish of belonging and respect the expectations of the diocese and the particular parish.
