Elementary (K - 5)
Our Elementary program is a faith based Catholic curriculum designed to foster the basic and sacramental needs of children in lower elementary grades. Our Kindergarten class uses the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Level 1 (Atrium) program. This year in grades 1-5, we are using the Alive in Christ program by Our Sunday Visitor.
Students in the second grade prepare for First Reconciliation after the new year and are scheduled to receive the sacrament on Saturday, March 4, 2023. The third grade will prepare for First Communion and Confirmation in their weekly classrooms. The tentative date for First Communion and Confirmation are April 29 or April 22, 2023 (pending scheduling from the Diocese). More information will be given later in the year. There are additional materials used in preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist, and Confirmation.
In the Diocese of Phoenix, the guidelines for receiving sacraments are as follows:
