Program Overview

St. Anselm Church welcomes all children in second grade or older to register into our First Communion sacrament preparation program. The child must be baptized, or scheduled to be baptized before they can receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion.

Class Schedule: Coming Soon

The program is made up of two phases, the curriculum-based phase which takes place in the classroom from 9-9:50am and the liturgical phase which includes attending the 10:00AM family mass.

Mass attendance is a requirement of the sacrament preparation class. You can either come onsite or join any zoom mass. 

Curriculum

We use St. Mary’s Press curriculum called “Go Seek Find: Discover God’s Treasures.”

Here is how St. Mary’s Press describes this new curriculum:

Go Seek Find: Discover God’s Treasures is a new sacrament prep program centered on a new approach. Instead of using a traditional textbook or workbook, children interact with and explore The Catholic Children’s Bible, seeing how Scripture relates to the themes they are learning about—in a way they can understand.

Children track their journey through Scripture to their destination of celebrating the Sacraments using colorful treasure maps and stickers. Fun, hands-on activities get them up out of their seats, moving and engaged in what they’re learning.
