YM Sacrament Preparation


“In those days Jesus departed to the mountain to pray, and He spent the night in prayer to God. When day came, Jesus called His Disciples to himself, and from them He chose Twelve, whom he also named Apostles.” ~~ Luke 6:12-13

Youth Ministry Sacramental Preparation is for those in middle-school and high-school grades 6th - 12th. The Diocese of Phoenix is a restored order diocese, which means that both Confirmation and First Communion are ordinarily celebrated in 3rd grade. Youth Ministry Sacrament Preparation is a two-year program that will prepare any middle or high-school age teen for youth of any or all of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, First Communion) as well as their 1st Reconciliation.
The two-year youth ministry sacramental preparation includes attending weekly Mass, attending weekly EDGE or Life Teen (depending on grade), as well as, coming to Tuesday sacrament classes with a parent/sponsor.
