Welcome to Children's Religious Education!


Hello Catechism Families!!

Reconciliation

Grade 2 Reconciliation Classes-  You are rolling along very nicely we have had 4 students receive their first reconciliation, they did wonderfully and we are excited to have more join them!!.

Our Reconciliation retreat is this weekend March 7 at 10 am at Sacred Heart Parish,  Please be on time as the activities start right on time and the first activity is Father Alfie's talk!!  We are meeting in the parish Hall.  I will be there to greet and will stay the whole day with the kids.  Parents you can stay or drop off and join us at 1pm for the service.  There will be an opportunity for our children to make their first reconciliation at this service but it they are not feeling up to yet we will be having the sign up for the individual meetings with Father from now until  May 16. Simply Connect with Carmen and I at class or email and will slot your child in.

First Communion Candidates

Easter will soon be here and Jesus gave us our greatest gift, the Eucharist.  I believe that attendance at the Holy Thursday Mass is a great teaching moment for our candidates and if I could be so bold as to say its Mandatory to attend please consider it a strong suggestion.  As we are teaching the children about the Holy Eucharist it only makes sense that we attend the Mass that started it all.  He gave us the words at the Last Supper that we still speak today.  " Take this Bread..." " Take this Cup..." its just so powerful and meaningful.  First Communion candidates should really focus on this Easter and the Masses for them to understand the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist,  its not a symbol or reminder.  So many of us tend to not truly understand his True Presence in the Eucharist.
