Within the Diocese of Savannah, second and seventh graders normally prepare to receive Sacraments through either St. Anne-Pacelli Catholic School or the parish's Religious Education program.
Second graders prepare through their classes to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist. The rituals usually occur in early February for First Reconciliation and in May for First Communion.
Seventh graders are given the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Bishop Hartmayer normally schedules this ritual during the Easter season. As Catholics making an adult commitment, those choosing to prepare for Confirmation have a number of in-class and out-of-class requirements.
