Sacramental Preparation

The Office for Pastoral Care & Worship provides formation for members of the St. Thomas community who wish to receive the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist) in the Catholic Church. Because each person’s circumstances and faith journey are unique, we try to adapt the sacramental preparation to meet the needs of each person.

Non-Christians and Christians coming from a tradition other than Catholicism: Please see the Becoming Catholic page for more information.

Catholics interested in receiving Confirmation or First Communion: Formation will vary based on your familiarity with the Catholic faith. Please contact Fr. James-Peter Trares, OP (frtrares@stthomas.edu) to discuss how we can best help you.
