Sacramental Preparation

The sacramental life of the children of the Catholic tradition is an important component of the religion program at Christ the King Catholic School. Preparations for two sacraments, Reconciliation and Eucharist, are the core of our efforts. In accordance with the Diocesan guidelines, candidates for First Eucharist will receive the sacrament of Reconciliation prior to their First Eucharist. Parents are required to be active partners in the preparation of their children for these sacraments. Parents and children will attend a Reconciliation Retreat during the fall semester and children will attend a First Communion Retreat during the spring semester. There is one mandatory meeting parents will attend in the spring semester. The sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist are only conferred to baptized students.

Christ the King School, located in Fort Smith, Arkansas, was established in 1949. We are a parochial school with classes from 18 Months through 6th Grade, and are led by Fr. Juan Guido and Principal Jeff Plake. Christ the King Catholic School is a member of the National Catholic Education Association and is accredited though Arkansas Non-Public School Accrediting Association.
