Jr. High & High School – 7th to 12th Grade

“You too, dear young people, can be joyful witnesses of His love, courageous witnesses of His Gospel, carrying to this world a ray of His light”
-Pope Francis at World Youth Day 2013

We are grateful for your decision to have your teen receive their Sacraments (Baptism, Confirmation, First Communion, and/or Confession). 

Program details

Cost for classes: $65

Our program runs for two years and it is designed to help students understand the teachings of the Catholic Church and to have a personal encounter with the Living God. Students must be attending Mass regularly and have very good attendance to classes in order to receive their Sacraments.

Junior High

Classes are offered at St. Mary and at St. Juan Diego on Mondays from 5 PM – 6 PM. The program will also include 1 mandatory Day of Renewal that will be held on a weekend a few weeks before the Sacrament Ceremony.

High School

High School Sacramental Prep classes are only offered at St. Mary’s. The classes are held on Tuesdays from 5 PM – 6 PM in Hurtado Hall. The Program includes 1 day of Renewal and a retreat. *There will be an additional fee for this retreat*.

Students that have already received their Sacraments of Initiation
