WELCOME TO RELIGIOUS EDUCATION! COME LEARN WITH US!
At the Last Supper, Jesus instituted the Eucharist as a spiritual gift to all the Faithful. When we take part in the Holy Mass and the Eucharist, we receive the Body and Blood of Christ in a special way. As third grade First Communicants, we take a very important step in our journey of Faith.
Second and third grade Religion classes as well as the Sacrament of Reconciliation prepare us to receive Jesus in the Eucharist. Then, we are privileged to partake in Communion for the rest of our lives! This year we learn about the Mass and attend with our family. We learn prayers and hymns to praise God.
We are pleased to announce that First Holy Communion for Third graders will take place on Saturday April 20, 2024 at 10:30am. Call time for students is 10am SHARP in the Hall.
