WHERE THE ENCOUNTER BECOMES A LIFELONG FRIENDSHIP

Welcome to the Sacrament Preparation Process for St. Robert Bellarmine Parish!  As a family with a child entering  their  formal years of faith formation you all are embarking on a journey in which your family will encounter Jesus Christ, our Savior in a real way and develop a deep friendship that will last a lifetime.

Preparing to receive a sacrament is a process with three essential components:

  • LIVING FAITH through your family life at home;
  • LEARNING FAITH through parish formation opportunities;
  • LOVING FAITH through worshipping and serving with the parish family

This process begins with the Sacrament of Baptism and continues throughout our lives.  s As your child begins their elementary school year they should also begin to expand their understanding of our Catholic faith.  Once a solid foundation in faith understanding is established preparation to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Communion may begin.
