CATECHISM & COMMUNION REGISTRATION IS HERE!
Catechism Religious Education
Who: Catechism is for school-aged children in Kindergarten through 5th Grade
What: Catechism is a program of continuing faith formation. It serves as a learning introduction to the Commandments, Sacraments, and the teachings of the Catholic Church. Most importantly, the program will introduce the children to a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church.
When: First Day is Saturday, September 21, 2019 – Held Saturdays from 10am – 12pm
Where: St Thomas Social Hall (Basement) and Upstairs Lobby
First Holy Communion
Who: 3rd Graders and Older. No Exceptions! This is a Diocese Requirement!
What: First Holy Communion is when our children will prepare to meet the Lord Jesus in this very special sacrament. The First Holy Communion ritual celebrates the child’s second step toward full initiation into the Church. The Eucharist is the greatest gift that Jesus gave to us – the gift of himself. The Eucharist is a gift that takes a whole lifetime to understand; it is a gift that requires a response from us. That is why it is so special and why we must take such care that our children are well-prepared.
When: Classes begin Monday, September 30, 2019. Classes will meet 2 times per week on Mondays from 6:30pm-8pm and on Saturdays from 3:30pm-6pm (Saturdays, children will celebrate Mass at 5pm. This is required and not optional.)
PARENTS MUST ATTEND THE FIRST DAY FOR ORIENTATION.
Where: St Thomas Social Hall (Basement)
