“God is proclaimed through the encounter between persons, with care for their history and their journey. Because the Lord is not an idea, but a living Person: his message is passed on through simple and authentic testimony, by listening and welcoming, with joy which radiates outward.”

Preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist
Preparation for Reconciliation and Eucharist in the Archdiocese of Washington is a two year program. For children who attend a Catholic elementary school they receive their first year of preparation and catechesis in their school at about the age of six. Children who attend a public school, private non-Catholic school, or are home-schooled are expected to receive their formal catechesis in their parish School of Religion. It is not until the second year of formal catechesis that the children receive these sacraments for the first time.
Families who want their child to receive these sacraments in the 2017-2018 catechetical year are expected to be registered members of St. Hugh Parish and must provide proof of their child's baptism (if not at St.Hugh). This year, there will be a mandatory meeting on Sunday, September 24, 2017 at 11:00am. Please download and complete the Sacramental Information Form, and bring it with proof of your child's baptism, and the sacramental preparation fee $25.00 (checks made out to St.Hugh) to the meeting. Thank you.
Our Parish School of Religion is committed to serving our families in their holy mission of raising their children in the Catholic faith. This year we will be inviting each of our families to an informal chat about how our parish religious education program can best support them in their mission to raise their children to live thier Catholic faith in today's world. For more information please contact Mary Wade, Director of the School of Religion.

Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation
Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Archdiocese of Washington is also a two year program (about age 13 and 14) with the second year of preparation and reception of the sacrament taking place in the parish in which the candidate's family is registered. The focus of the first year is on the sacramental life of a Catholic. The focus on the second year is on the history and life of the Church, gifted, guided, and transformed by the holy Spirit. It is the work of the second year of preparation that involves a commitment from not only the candidates, but their families and sponsors.
A mandatory parent and candidate meeting will be scheduled in early September. At least one parent must be in attendance with their confirmation candidate. The Confirmation Team will be introduced, the events planned for the upcoming year of preparation will be reviewed, and the rationale behind our parish preparation program will be shared.
You are invited to download and print the events calendar, information on how to select a sponsor and the Confirmation Information Form. The completed registration packet and sacramental preparation fee is $50.00 and will be due in October.
