Children prepare for their First Penance, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation through instruction at St. Cornelius School or the Parish Religious Education Program (PREP).

First Penance and First Holy Communion usually take place during 2nd grade.

Confirmation now takes place during the fall of 8th grade.
