Family Catechesis

Family Catechesis provides the opportunity for families to complete sacraments together. With the components of a Sacramental preparation program while creating deeper bonds and understanding in the family as a whole, parents and children can receive the sacraments of Baptism, First Eucharist and Confirmation after completing the program. Families would meet monthly for a family catechesis session and be sent home with activities to complete before the next meeting.

Prerequisites and Commitment 

With the full support and seriousness from the parents/guardians, we are committed to a new way of sharing the faith in Jesus Christ, participating fully in the life of this community of St. Bernard. Our hope is the family will attend mass together on Sunday. 

Families who wish to be part of the program please complete the following:


  1. Be registered in the parish. When registering, checkmark Yes to receive envelopes. 

  2. Once you receive envelopes, you can deposit them in the basket during the Sunday collection. That is how we will take your attendance.

  3. Help sell Parish Raffle tickets for any fundraising.

  4. Comply with the required service hours.

  5. We may ask parents to attend a few meetings during the program.
