First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion
Children are prepared for their First Reconciliation and for their First Holy Communion in the 2nd grade. Children who are attending either St. Andrew Academy or the Parish Religious Education program celebrate these sacraments together, usually at a Sunday Mass between Easter and the end of April. If a person has missed the reception of either sacrament, please call Cathy at the parish office for information, 937-5920, ext. 17. First Holy Communion is also celebrated at the Easter Vigil with those who are being initiated into the Catholic Church.

Sacrament of Confirmation
This sacrament seals a person's baptism. Reception of this sacrament is necessary for marriage in the Catholic Church. Eighth Grade Students in St. Andrew Academy and the Parish Religious Program are invited to prepare for this most important sacrament. People of other ages, who are not yet confirmed, are also invited to prepare for the celebration of this Sacrament of Initiation. The archbishop usually comes to St. Peter the Apostle and confirms our 8th grade candidates at a regular Sunday liturgy. The Sacrament of Confirmation is also celebrated by the pastor at the Easter Vigil with those who are being initiated into the Catholic faith.
