Sacrament of Penance

Students are prepared and ready to receive this Sacrament during their second year of study. A two year program is required and parents are to attend all scheduled meetings.

Sacrament of First Holy Communion

Children will be prepared and ready to receive this Sacrament in May of their second year. A two year program is required for this Sacrament.

Sacrament of Confirmation

Candidates will be prepared and ready to receive this Sacrament in the spring of their Eighth Grade year. St. Anastasia’s Pastor must accept and approve each candidate to be presented for the Sacrament. All other requirements are distributed by the instructors and must be completed and approved before the Sacrament is received.

*Please note when speaking of requirements for the preparation of the Sacraments, it does not support that children are exempt from attending the program in intervening years. Children who are accepted into the program of concentrated study for the Sacraments are expected to be conversant with their faith in an age appropriate way.
