Sacrament Formation

All ACS students who desire to receive their sacraments must attend the sacrament formation offered through their home parish. This is a requirement of the Diocese of Phoenix for all school children as noted in your School Handbook.

If your child still has sacraments they need to complete, and they are a parishioner of St. Gabriel parish, they will need to register for sacrament formation through St. Gabriel.

Sacrament Formation at St. Gabriel Parish is a 3-year program (beginning in 1st grade). The children meet once a week from September-May. The days/times offered for next year are listed on the website as well as the Sacrament Prep calendar for next year.  Please view the Child Sacrament Formation page on the St. Gabriel website:  https://stgacc.org/sacramental-prep  (registration available in late May)    Kira Mello  childfaith@stgacc.org
