It includes preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation. We average 650 children in our classes, which are taught by parishioner volunteers. There are ordinarily about 66 classes conducted by approximately 100 volunteers. The program Coordinator is Ms. Michelle Dore’.
