FISH are children in grades 2-6 who wish to receive the initiation sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist. For preparation, we use the GROWING UP CATHOLIC materials that focus on all three sacraments. This is a home-study program. Parents, this great program will give you the words and materials necessary to teach your child about God and the faith in your own words and in your own home. You will both learn A LOT! A notebook will be given to you when you come to the first session (see dates below).
Monthly sessions are hands-on projects that we do to enhance your family’s understanding of Jesus and the Catholic Faith.
