Students interested in receiving sacraments should contact their parish to register for the preparation process there. If students are interested and not affiliated with a parish, they may register at St. Cyril Parish which is under the Carmelite leadership.
Registration for this year has continues through August 28, 2022. There will be an information meeting for parents and students on Sunday, August 21, 2022 at 11:30 am in Nicholson Hall. Families may call 520-795-1633 for information regarding registration for St. Cyril sacrament preparation program this year. The preparation meetings will take place on Sunday mornings, starting on September 11 and confirmation will be celebrated in November.
Again, is it highly encouraged for Catholic Salpointe students to receive sacraments at their home parishes.
