Sacramental Life

Christ the King prepares second grade students and eighth grade students for sacraments during the regular school day. This allows students to learn in the classroom setting and participate in the celebration of the sacraments with their fellow classmates.

First Reconciliation is celebrated in the fall. Students enjoy classroom instruction as they are guided toward the actual Sacrament. Parents meet before each sacrament in order to understand the curriculum that is taught in school; this allows time for parents to ask questions that they may need answered.

First Communion is celebrated in the spring. Although each day leads to the climax of the reception of the Sacrament, students begin at school's start to learn and ready themselves. Students enjoy activities that lead up to the Sacrament such as tulip planting, Last Supper, and a Retreat Day. Each component allows for spiritual and educational growth in their faith.

Eighth grade students prepare for Confirmation through their Religion class and through retreats, reflection and prayerful preparation. Confirmation is usually held in February or March.
