In second grade the students prepare for the reception of their first Reconciliation and First Eucharist. The eighth graders prepare for the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation. The sacramental preparation programs are an important part of the curriculum for these grades.
Participating in sacraments is an important part of the spiritual life at St. Ignatius School. Each class, grades first through eighth, receives Eucharist weekly at mass. During Advent and Lent, third through eighth grades partake in the sacrament of Reconciliation.

As we begin this new school year at St. Ignatius, we would like to welcome you and your child/children to the Sacrament Preparation Program. Second grade is a special year because your child is invited to receive two other sacraments, Eucharist and Reconciliation. Please open the attached documents for more details about Sacrament preparation.
Anyone who would like to volunteer their time at school, on a field trip, or any activity that involves our students, MUST complete an on line course provided by Catholic Mutual Group.
THIS TRAINING IS MANDATED AND A CERTIFICATE MUST BE PRESENTED TO THE SCHOOL OFFICE BEFORE YOU MAY VOLUNTEER TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY SCHOOL EVENTS/FUNCTIONS WHERE CHILDREN ARE PRESENT. This training must be renewed EVERY 3 years.
