Sacraments

The Sacramental Program at St. Vincent Ferrer Parish is coordinated between the school and the Faith Formation. Students in Grade 2 are prepared for the Penance and Sacraments of First Eucharist and in Grade 3 - 8 for the Sacrament of Communal Penance. These preparation programs also include parent sessions. All parents of students preparing for these sacraments are expected to attend several preparation sessions.

Non-Catholic students are included in the sacramental preparation as part of the Religion curriculum and their parents are welcome to attend the parent sessions. However, they are not required to receive the sacraments.

During Advent and Lent students are expected to attend one 8 AM daily Mass with their class each week. However, any student who has written parental permission is invited to attend the 8 AM daily Mass any time during these special seasons of the Liturgical Calendar.
