  • -Tuesdays 4:00-5:30 pm
  • -Wednesdays 4:00-5:30 pm

Eucharist Program for Children

The Eucharist Program will prepare children to celebrate the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.

St. Raymond has a two-year preparation policy for receiving these sacraments as follows.

Your child must have completed 1 year of basic Faith Formation within the past 2 years in addition to being enrolled in this year’s Faith Formation class or attending St. Raymond School.

If your child has had no formal training in Faith Formation within the past 2 years, they will be placed in a basic Formation class this year and enter into the sacrament preparation class the following year.


Registration forms are available for download.

We need your help!

Are you being called to be more involved this year?  Come share yourself with our Faith Formation classes.

We need Catechists for grades 1st-5th. Even if you have never taught before don't worry, we have a special teacher workshop every year.

Class sizes are held to no more than 12 students per class. Lesson plans are all pre-designed and our material is geared toward people why have never taught before.

You can even ask a friend to team teach with you and share the experience together!

Make this year the year you say, "Yes!" to the call and join our team of volunteers for this incredible life-changing experience.

Please contact Susy Cano our Faith Formation Admin Assistant or Maggie Ringle our Religious Ed Director for more info or stop by the Faith Formation office during the week!
