 Sacrament Preparation

Preparation for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist (Grade 2), and preparation for Confirmation (Grade 8) take place concurrently with the grade level curriculum in both the afterschool Religious Education Program and in St. Hugo School.  A portion of the sacrament preparation takes place at home and requires the participation of parents and other family members.  A service requirement is part of the sacrament preparation for both Grades 2 and 8.

The Sacrament Preparation Meeting Schedule is available through this website and is also available in the Religious Education Office.  Attendance at these meetings is a requirement for both parents and children.

Sacrament Preparation for Children attending Catholic Schools other than St. Hugo School

Students who are in Grade 2 or Grade 8 and attend a Catholic school other than St. Hugo School are still expected to celebrate the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist (Grade 2) and Confirmation (Grade 8) at St. Hugo, their home parish.  We welcome these students and look forward each year to having them join with the Religious Education students and St. Hugo School students in the preparation for, and celebration of, these sacraments.  We ask that parents do the following:

  1. Register your child for the sacrament through the Religious Education Office; we coordinate the Sacrament Preparation program for the entire parish.
  2. Plan on attending the meetings WITH YOUR CHILD that relate to either 2nd or 8th grade.  Please refer to the Sacrament Preparation Meeting Schedule.
  3. Work together with your child at home to complete the sacrament preparation materials that we will provide.
  4. Bring your child to one to two practices in church prior to First Eucharist or Confirmation.

The Religious Education Office will be happy to help you with any questions you may have and to accept your child’s registration.  Please call us at 248-642-6062.

 Along with participation in the Religious Education Program, children and their families are expected to participate in the weekend liturgies on either Saturday evening or Sunday.  See you in church!
