Youth Sacraments


Catholic baptisms at All Saints Parish are a cherished and significant sacrament for the entire community. Through baptism, individuals are welcomed into the Catholic faith and become members of the Church.

At All Saints Parish, we believe that baptism is a lifelong commitment to living a faith-filled life and growing in one's relationship with God.

Our own Deacon Mike Klappholz is always available to answer any questions and provide guidance throughout the entire baptismal process, from preparation to the ceremony itself.

First Reconciliation

At All Saints Parish, First Reconciliation is an important step in a child's faith journey.

Led by our experienced Director of Childrens Formation, Stacy Cataldo, the program is designed to help children understand the sacrament of reconciliation and prepare them for this important step in their spiritual growth.

Through age-appropriate lessons and activities, children will learn about the importance of confession, forgiveness, and reconciliation. Our program also offers opportunities for children to practice the sacrament and receive the sacrament in a supportive and nurturing environment.

For more information, contact Stacy Cataldo.

First Eucharist

At All Saints Parish, we value the significance of the First Eucharist as a crucial step in a child's spiritual journey.

Led by our Director of Children's Formation, Stacy Cataldo, our program works closely with families to prepare children for this special sacrament.

With a blend of classroom instruction, prayer, and reflection, our goal is to provide a personalized and unforgettable experience for each child.

Our approach aims to establish a strong foundation of faith and knowledge that empowers children to continue growing spiritually throughout their lives.

For more information, contact Stacy Cataldo.


Confirmation deepens our baptismal life that calls us to be witnesses of Christ in our world.

To celebrate this sacrament, All Saints Parish invites students entering or past 10th grade to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation through preparation classes.

Through this experience students receive the message of our Catholic faith in a deeper and more intentional manner, learning how the Holy Spirit animates and inspires each one of our hearts to help build up God's Kingdom.

Family Formation

Grades K-5

Family Formation is a collaboration between All Saints Catholic Church and St. Matthew's Catholic Church.

Family Formation is the name of our faith-based education program for children in grades K–5 and their parents. This may be done as a family to grow spiritually and learn more about the Catholic faith.

In addition to learning about a range of themes that support family religious life, parents will also learn about issues that relate to what their children are studying.

Lessons to be completed at home by parents and their children will make up the remaining portion of each month. The goal of this program is to support parents in fulfilling the church's mandate that they serve as the children's "first and foremost educators." Our goal is to support families as they deepen their connection with Christ and get a better understanding of the Catholic Faith.

Family Formation costs $75 per child.

10:00am to 11:00am in the All Saints Parish Social Hall.

Ablaze - Youth Ministry

Ablaze Logo

Ablaze is a dynamic and engaging youth ministry program that takes its inspiration from the powerful "Road to Emmaus" passage. This passage, which recounts the story of two disciples who encountered the risen Jesus on the road to Emmaus, is a powerful reminder of how Jesus reveals himself to us in personal and relational ways.

At Ablaze, we strive to create a welcoming and inclusive community where young people can experience the same kind of intimate relationship with Jesus that his disciples did.

Our program is designed to be highly interactive and engaging, with a variety of activities that are designed to help young people deepen their faith and connect with each other in meaningful ways.

From faith-filled small groups to engaging witness talks and charismatic worship services, we believe that Ablaze has something to offer every young person who is seeking to grow in their faith and deepen their relationship with God. We invite you to join us on this exciting journey of faith and discovery, and to experience for yourself the transformative power of the gospel in your life.

7:00pm to 8:30pm at St. Matthews Church. Open to students of any Parish or Religious affiliation.
Enter through the main sanctuary door.

Every Wednesday beginning in September and ending in May.
