In this program, parents, YOU become the actual teacher of your child, but we guide you through every step. This is a memorable time in your child's life - and the memories you make during this preparation period will be cherished for a long time.
There are a total of 6 preparation sessions plus the celebration of the sacrament itself. You’ll receive a helpful guide and your child will receive a beautiful text. With our leader assisting, you and your child will work through this text. You’ll be amazed at how much you’ll enjoy this process! 
Feel free to use the Growing Up Catholic website. The work you do with your child is so vital to his or her faith! And you’ll find that your own faith is enriched by this process as well. You’ll find this at


Welcome. We are beginning a great journey!
You are a child of God. You are part of the largest and most famous family in the world: the Catholic Church. You are blessed.
God wants you to always feel welcome in his presence, in his Church, and as a member of his family. You are the son or daughter of a great King.
You may think of yourself as a boy or a girl, as young or old, as black or white, as American or Chinese, but first and foremost, you are a child of God. He is the great King, and you are his son or daughter. We all have this in common. God is our Father.
