Youth Sacraments (6-12th grade)

Baptisms for Youth

Baptism is the first sacrament celebrated in the process of initiation into the Catholic Church. The waters of baptism symbolize life and death, washing and cleansing, and the mystery of new life out of death.  at the baptism of a child (or any person), we celebrate and reflect on God’s unconditional love and welcome him or her into our Christian Faith.

To inquire about a youth Baptism and the preparation process for youth who are either in middle or high school (grades 6-12) contact RG Garcia at youth@svdphb.org

First Eucharist for Youth

The Eucharist is the “Source and Summit of the Christian Life.” That means that celebrating the Sacrifice of the Mass is the most important moment of our lives on Earth.  To fully participate in the Mass is to be able to receive the Eucharist.  We believe that God makes ordinary bread and wine into the flesh and blood of Jesus Christ, not a symbol, but his true presence.  This is an important Sacrament that deserves great respect and preparation. To prepare to receive the Eucharist, you must complete a minimum of 2 years of Faith Formation.
