Schedule for 1st Penance Prep
“Preparation for Penance must take place prior to preparation and reception of First Communion…It is important for parents/guardians to have an understanding of and appreciation for the Sacrament of Penance. Only then will the newly formed penitent grow in his/her fidelity to the sacrament. Thus, sacrament preparation meetings are essential and provide an opportunity for good solid adult faith formation.” (Excerpted from Sacraments for Young Children)

Parents are to interview with Fr. Geoff.   Attendance at all sessions and retreat (either Fall or Winter) is required.

Questions?  Concerns?  Please contact Rebecca Peltier, or 777-4322, x.106.

Schedule for 1st Eucharist Prep

“The involvement of the parents and the family and the parish community in preparation for Eucharist is essential. Children and all participants need to talk about what they see and hear at Mass, about the readings, the homily, the symbols and the ritual gestures.” (Excerpted from Sacraments for Young Children) 

Attendance at all sessions and retreat are required.

Sacramental Prep for Children in Second Grade & Above

The policy of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati is that children in the 2nd grade and above, about age 7 or older, be prepared for and celebrate the sacrament of Penance before they are prepared for and celebrate the sacrament of Eucharist.  Therefore, children are prepared for and celebrate the two sacraments in the same year.  

“Parents are to “be recognized as being primarily and principally responsible for their [faith] education…it is almost impossible to provide an adequate substitute.” (GE #3) Therefore, it is through and with the family that we promote an understanding of and preparation for the sacraments. The parish community in partnership with the parents prepares for sacraments.” (Excerpted from Sacraments for Young Children)  

They are also to be prepared by their parish of membership. St. Max recognizes the formation children receive in an Archdiocesan Catholic School and Religious Formation of Youth (RFY) classes or Home Study program at St. Max. (If your child receives formation through Home School or a non-Archdiocesan school, please contact Zack Hinger

Families who want their child(ren) to prepare for and celebrate the sacraments of Penance and First Communion, should first meet with the pastor to discuss family readiness.  Following the initial conversation with the pastor, we have a retreat and 2 Tuesday evening sessions for each of the two sacraments for the integration of the knowledge of the language and “how to” of our faith with the traditions and practices of the faith. These additional sessions beyond the classroom are for the child and a parent (or special adult) to attend together. Using our parish data base, all parents of children with an appropriate birthday will receive an informational letter concerning preparation so as to not overlook any child.

If your child is in the first grade or third grade and has already celebrated the sacrament, please just leave a message with Rebecca Peltier, or 777-4322, x.106. that preparation is not needed at this time.
