Growing Up Catholic Sacramental Preparation

Growing Up Catholic offers a carefully tested and well-crafted sacramental formation process. It provides the immediate preparation for First Reconciliation, First Communion, and/or Confirmation in restored order.

  3. We set the stage for a lifetime of faith.
