The goal of PREP is to assist parents in the religious education of children attending public schools in Kindergarten to Grade 7  and to prepare them to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and the First Holy Communion in Grade 2 and Confirmation in Grade 7.  Two years preparation is required for the sacaments.

PREP used to  be known as CCD (Catechism Confraternity of Christian Doctrine  or simply as "Catechism," and provides religious education to Catholic children attending non-Catholic  schools.

If, for whatever reason, children have not received parish religious education and the sacraments "on time", special preparation classes are organized each year to help families ensure their children receive the Sacraments of First Holy Communion and Confirmation.
