The value of a sacramental celebration is strongly dependent on the connections among the people and to what the dimensions of past, present and future bring to the celebration. In order for sacraments to be meaningful celebrations for us, we need to be grounded in Scripture, involved with our faith community, and working toward God’s reign.
To receive the sacrament of communion, Catholics must first prepare through a course of religious education. Children can prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation through CCD / Catechism Classes offered through Good Shepherd Catholic Parish. Classes are available in English and Spanish and are offered on various days and locations.
