Baptism

We are delighted that you wish to have your child baptized at Holy Family Catholic Church. Baptism is one of the three sacraments of initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist.  Baptism holds a special place in the Church because it is the “door” to all other sacraments.

If you want to set up an appointment to get the Baptism process started, contact Dani Tarantino at dtarantino@holyfamilyorlando.org

First Eucharist

In the Diocese of Orlando, First Communion (Eucharist) preparation is a two-year process for children and consists of two parts: faith formation classes and First Communion workshops:

  • If the child is enrolled in Holy Family Catholic School (HFCS), they will attend faith formation classes through the school.

  • If the child is not enrolled in HFCS, they will attend faith formation classes through the Parish. 

  • ALL HFCS and PREP students will be required to attend workshops and other meetings to complete preparation to receive the sacrament.

The process typically starts in First Grade, with the student receiving First Reconciliation and First Communion in Second Grade.

For more information regarding the First Communion process contact Dani Tarantino at dtarantino@holyfamilyorlando.org

Confirmation

Preparation for Confirmation is conducted through Faith Formation.  Typically preparation for Confirmation begins in seventh grade with Pre-Confirmation. After completing the year of Pre-Confirmation the young person will move to the Confirmation program.  At the end of the second year of instruction the candidate will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.  

 

For more information regarding the Confirmation process contact Dani Tarantino at dtarantino@holyfamilyorlando.org
