Catholic Growth Chart

The Strategic Task Action Team (STAT) is proud to present “My Catholic Growth Chart” which was created to support one of the four main strategic plan goals of Engaging:  Youth, Teens, 20’s & 30’s.  As a part of this objective, the following goal was established:  Engage youth, teens, and young adults to increase their participation as active members of the SES community.   This ‘easy to follow’ chart is intended to be used as a tool to guide parents & children as to opportunities that are available to our youth to learn, serve and minister.  These opportunities are based on their age, grade in school, and sacraments received from birth through confirmation and beyond.   


Religious Education Registration


It is diocesan policy that a person be in the Religious Education program for one full year before receiving sacraments.  A child needs to be in First Grade Religious Education to be on track to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist in Second Grade.
