Registration Information

Sacramental Preparation to receive First Holy Communion and Confirmation has begun!
Thanks for joining us this year!

Important Information

At St. Pius X, students in second grade prepare for First Communion and students in fifth grade may prepare for Confirmation.
Please see below for the changes to the Sacramental Preparation program for 2020-2021:
  • Due to the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, we are unable to plan for a classroom-based instruction model. Instead, we will use online resources with which families can engage from home. We will supplement the online curriculum with the Baltimore Catechism that is appropriate for your child’s grade level.
  • In addition to the resources provided, the Sacramental Preparation program will include simple weekly assignments for students to complete.
  • All assignments for Sacramental Preparation will be completed and submitted online.
  • A live, family component is part of this Sacramental Preparation model. Each child and at least one parent must participate in six live sessions with Father Sam and Shari Garcia to further assist in your child’s preparation. These sessions will not last more than one hour.
    • There are two options for participating in these sessions: 1) in person (pre-registration required for each session, following all social distancing requirements in place) OR 2) an online live session (link/call-in number provided for each session)
    • The live sessions will take place on six Tuesday evenings throughout the year at 5:30pm.
  • Information regarding where to submit assignments, how to join the six family sessions, and more will be communicated in your confirmation email after your child’s registration has been processed.
Due to the ever-evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, these policies and decisions are subject to change. Any changes will be in line with suggestions and regulations from the CDC, the WHO, the State of Connecticut, and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bridgeport and will always be communicated in a timely manner. 

 

NOTE: Space in the program is limited to parishioners of St. Pius X Parish and is filled on a first-come, first-served basis. All new registrations must include a copy of your child’s Baptismal Certificate (unless the Baptism took place at St. Pius X) and record of any other Sacraments they have received.

If you are a new Fairfield resident, please register as a parishioner and complete the online registration form.

Please read the policies below BEFORE completing your registration for 2020-2021 Sacramental Preparation and see below for the 2020-2021 calendar.
