C.A.F.E. Sacrament Preparation

This ministry is geared toward children entering 1st grade to 8th grade and requires a minimum 2-year commitment.  For children entering TK-Kinder, we offer a pre-sacrament program that helps the family begin to share the gospel readings and practice Catholic prayers.  Additionally, we also offer sacrament preparation for adaptive learners (special needs youth) and their families.

All groups meet year-round (with small group sharing, family events, and more).  Our ministry is different from other sacrament preparation as we bring the child and parent together to connect through the Eucharist and Reconciliation over this two-year journey.

CAFÉ Registration opens July 1, 2024, however we are happy to connect in June!
