the young people who make up the student body at St. Mary School come
from many different parishes, there may exist some confusion on where
the Sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation are to be
celebrated. These Sacraments of Initiation are to be celebrated in the
parish church where the person receiving the Sacrament is a
parishioner. At times there may be extenuating circumstances which
could prevent this from happening. It is then the responsibility of the
pastor of the candidate receiving the Sacrament to make a pastoral
decision as how best to resolve the issue. The parish we belong to is
our spiritual home and the community where our faith is nurtured and
supported. In a parochial school setting where the student body is made
up of parishioners from different parishes it is important that the
host parish does not assume a role that it doesn't have. Here at St.
Mary School, we will always respect the relationship that our students
have as parishioners at their own parishes.
Lastly, if your child, for whatever reason, is "out of sequence"
sacramentally, please contact Brian McCauley at St. Mary of the
Assumption Catholic Church so an appropriate and timely plan of
sacramental preparation can be developed.
