Sacramental Preparation
for kids & teens


At St. Ignatius, sacrament prep supports a joyful, fruitful, and lasting relationship with Jesus.

First Reconciliation
& First Communion

Prep classes for First Communion and First Reconciliation (together) take place twice a year for kids in Grade 3 & 4.

Cost: 200$

The process

To begin, kids should attend Catch the Wave and/or the Good Shepherd Atrium for at least a year (20 times.)

At that point, parents will receive an invitation to enroll their child in an upcoming nine-week prep session. (Cost: $200)

(Note: Kids in Grade 5 and up prepare for all sacraments through Ignation.)

Signs of readiness

  • Do they enjoy coming to church?
  • Do they have a good attitude towards prayer?
  • Can they mostly stay focused and participate during mass?
  • Are they curious about receiving Jesus in Communion?

Confirmation will take place on June 1st, 2025
at the 10am Mass.

Ignation plus Confirmation – $200
Ignation only – $150

To be ready for Confirmation, a young person must have been baptized and have received their First Communion. In addition, they must freely desire Confirmation as a next step in faith.

Although there are no specific age requirements, we recommend Grade 7 and up.

First step:

Sign up for our youth program, Ignation, and participate during the fall.

Second step:

Take the 10-week prep course plus a retreat in the spring (retreat date TBD).

The Confirmation prep course takes place within Ignation. Ignation takes place in the Church Hall on Thursdays, beginning October 3rd:

  • Tweens (grades 4-6): from 5 to 7pm, including dinner
  • Early high school (grades 7-9): from 7 to 9pm
  • Upper high school (grades 10 to 12): from 7 to 9pm
