Sacraments Celebrated within Discipleship Formation

Please scroll down for all three Sacraments

Faith Formation’s Reconciliation for children usually occurs in the 2nd grade and up. It is normally scheduled in the early afternoon on a Saturday in November.

Parents and any children IN THE PROGRAM are asked to attend the prayer service and community reconciliation as a family. Dress is school appropriate attire. All “age- appropriate” family members are encouraged to attend Reconciliation with the Priest.

Reconciliation is not a one time only sacrament. Age-appropriate family members are encouraged to celebrate Reconciliation at least annually. This gives us the needed cleansing of our sins thru God’s grace. It allows us to move forward in our life, with a positive focus, to do God’s will.

First Eucharist is generally celebrated in the second grade but children in grades 3 and up also celebrate the sacrament. A child receives this Sacrament when they gain an understanding of First Eucharist. The sacrament is typically scheduled for a Saturday in late April.

(*Please know that the Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated prior to celebrating First Eucharist.)

The journey to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation at St. Isidore requires the teen to complete two paths of instruction: one of academic growth and the other of spiritual growth.

The academic path is structured around coursework taught by Catechists through the Faith Formation program. It is a two-year program that begins in the 7th grade and will complete academic and confirmation instruction at the end of the 8th grade year. The academic year runs September through April. To register students or for more information on class schedules, please visit the Faith Formation Registration page. 

The spiritual path starts in the 8th grade and is structured around preparing the student to understand the commitment of being a disciple of Christ.  Typical requirements may include, but are not limited to: spiritual event, service hours, Confirmation interview, Candidate/Sponsor event, mandatory meetings and paperwork.
