Elementary (K - 5)

Our Elementary program is a faith based Catholic curriculum designed to foster the basic and sacramental needs of children in lower elementary grades. Our Kindergarten class uses the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Level 1 (Atrium) program. This year in grades 1-5, we are using the Alive in Christ program by Our Sunday Visitor. 

Students in the second grade begin to prepare for their sacrament during their weekly class. First Reconciliation is tentatively scheduled for February 24, 2024.

Third grade students also prepare for First Communion and Confirmation in their weekly class. Dates are tentatively scheduled for the end of April/beginning of May pending scheduling by the Diocese of Phoenix.

More information will be given later in the year. There are additional materials used in preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist, and Confirmation.

In the Diocese of Phoenix, the guidelines for receiving sacraments are as follows:
