This process is for children baptized in the Catholic faith tradition who are 8 years or older by March 1; who have completed at least one full year of formal catechesis either here at Mary, Star of the Sea or another Catholic parish or who are currently enrolled at Stella Maris Academy.
Children attend their ordinary faith formation sessions either through the parish or the school while parents attend this process of preparation designed specifically to prepare the whole family for the reception of the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.
Parents/guardians are asked to attend required Sacramental Preparation sessions.
While we cannot meet in person yet due to COVID-19 regulations, the ministry has adapted to virtual instruction and will be temporarily accessible from home. Please contact the Parish Office for more information.
