Sacrament Preparation

Since parents are the primary teachers of faith for their children and their role models, they should be participating in the sacraments and attending Mass regularly. If your child is past the age ranges described below for each Sacrament and you would like your child to receive that Sacrament, please contact Denise Godinez, Director of Religious Education at (913) 722-2206 or through her email:  [email protected].

All parents who wish to have a child baptized must attend Baptism Preparation sessions. You must be registered in the parish and one parent must be an active Catholic. Please call the Religious Education office at (913) 722-2206 to sign up for classes. We recommend that you do this before the baby is born to ensure you have enough time to prepare for the spiritual birth of your child.
