Sacraments are ritualized celebrations for the parish family. They celebrate the presence of God in our daily lives, in ritual and with our faith community.

Confirmation is a Sacrament of Initiation, along with Baptism and Eucharist. The Confirmation program at Our Lady of the Woods is considered a two year program, covered in Grades 7 and 8. Children are expected to attend a Confirmation retreat and an event with their sponsors.

High school age students who have not made their Confirmation should contact the Director of Religious Education to arrange for preparation and reception.

Parish Policy

Baptismal certificates are required for each child. If your child was baptized at Our Lady of the Woods Church or has made his or her First Communion with us, we have a copy on file. If your child was baptized at another parish we need to see an original copy of the certificate.

Children must attend two consecutive years of religious education classes to be eligible for a sacrament. Transfer forms must be presented from the parish program you attended last year.

Parents’ involvement in sacramental preparation is essential. Attendance at parent meetings is a part of the commitment. We ask that parents help their students with lessons, projects and prayer. Families should regularly attend parish liturgies and the sacrament of Reconciliation, together.
