The parish prepares children to celebrate the Sacrament of Eucharist for the first time in second grade.  The process of sacramental catechesis, which includes the parents, begins in the grade one curriculum.  Immediate preparation begins in the second semester of grade two.  The process is separate from, but cooperates with, religious education, Catholic school religion classes, and home schooling. The process culminates usually in May with the communal celebration of Eucharist.

Parents who have children in grades three through eight who have not received their First Eucharist should contact Mrs. Cheryl Degenhart in the Religious Education Office at 636-225-0341 or email her at
