Registration for Fall 2017 sacrament preparation is now open.  Download the registration form here, and read below for information on the Restored Order.


As the Archbishop has requested, Nativity is restoring the order of the sacraments.  The Restored Order is when a child, after making his or her First Penance, is confirmed and then receives First Communion at the Confirmation mass.

Candidates seeking the Restored Order must be 7 years or older and have 4 Faith Formation credits.  Formation credits can be earned by the following:

  • One semester Religious Education (school, R.E. or catholic home school) equals one credit

  • One semester attending Middle School Ventures of the Star or High school youth group equals one credit

  • Attending Middle School Vacation, Totus Tuus or other Catholic retreat equals one credit.
