St. Nicholas Tavelich Parish seeks to form our young people in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, especially as they prepare to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Communion, and Confirmation.

The catechetical program at St. Nicholas Tavelich Parish is offered from October to mid-June. Classes meet on Friday evenings at the church, and are held between the hours of 6:00 and 7:20pm.
There are two classes offered, which prepare the children to receive their sacraments:

Communion: age 8, currently in grade 3, or in grade 2 with two previous years of catechism.
Confirmation: ages 12 and 13, currently in grade 7 or 8.

First Communion and First Reconciliation will be offered to children who are age 8 at the time of registration, or are entering grade 3 at the time of registration, or are in grade two with two previous years of catechism and who have completed the required preparation.
Confirmation will be offered to youth who are ages 12 and 13, currently in grade 7 or 8.
This year there will be no kindergarten class. If there are any questions or if anything is unclear, parents are asked to please come speak with Father Marko.
