Learning Our Catholic Prayers
Is your child in one of Sacramental Programs for either First Holy Communion or Confirmation? If so, they are required to learn some important Catholic prayers.
During the 1st year in the Sacrament of First Holy Communion, the 1st Year Prayers must be completed.
During the 2nd year in the Sacrament of First Holy Communion program, the 2nd Year Prayers must be completed. If you would like some worksheets to help with learning these prayers, we have the 2nd Year Prayers Worksheets available.
Students in the Sacrament of Confirmation Program have to complete the Essential Prayers.
Safe & Sacred Children's Program Materials
In order to remain compliant with Article 12 from the Charter of the USCCD, the Fresno Diocese requires that each parish must present the Safe & Sacred Children’s Program to participants in the CCD Program on an annual basis. We will be presenting materials to the boys & girls the week before we break for our Holy Rosary Festa (October 10th–15th). Links to materials for each grade level are available below for parental review. We will have a Parent Meeting to discuss this and the materials on October 3rd at 6pm in the Parish Hall. Please review the materials your child(ren) bring home during the week of October 10th-15th as there will be a section for you, the parent(s), to return to the Religious Education Department. Should you have any questions regarding this program, please contact Annie at the parish number of (209) 632-7163.
