Sacraments:

The Church teaches that Parents are the first instructors to their child. Our Parish Program is here to help you achieve that obligation. It is a very significant privilege that God has honored you and the Church with. It is important for your child to attend PSR classes from Kindergarten through the Eleventh Grade. I recommend and encourage not skipping any class years. We are here to support you in nurturing the Catholic Faith. If your child is attending an approved, by the Baton Rouge Diocese, Catholic Elementary or High School then in order to receive the Sacraments your child must be attending a two year prep course for that particle Sacrament.
