St. Martin of Tours is committed to equipping young people for a lifelong journey of faith. We support and encourage the goals of the student to affirm their Baptism and take personal responsibility for their faith going forward. We take seriously our commitment to provide the student with proper instruction and prepare the student for the opportunity to make that choice. To achieve this goal, we will provide the students with opportunities to obtain the knowledge and skills that they can use to achieve wisdom for living their Catholic Faith.

 

 

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

The Sacramental PREP Program includes grades 2 and 7, otherwise known as 2nd Grade Sacramental PREP and Confirmation PREP.

 

When you register your child for second grade PREP, they are automatically enrolled in 2nd Grade Sacramental PREP. The 2nd Grade Sacramental PREP Program is a home-based program along with an Enrichment Program. The Enrichment program will consist of six sessions, of which families need to attend four.

 

The Confirmation PREP Program is held during the school year entirely in a classroom setting. 

 

Sacramental PREP begins with the Enrollment Mass in September. The Enrollment Mass is the start of both the 2nd-grade Sacramental PREP course, which prepares students to receive First Penance and First Eucharist and Confirmation PREP.

 

Both of the sacramental PREP programs are outlined in full detail in their respective handbooks.
